in reply to (OT) I prefer to do my learning with: dead trees or flying electrons?

Here are some reasons why I bought the camel book, even though the man pages are fine:
  • It's a good book. It's more entertaining than the man pages and packed full of historical anecdotes and such.
  • It's nice to give a little money to Larry and the other writers, as well as O'Reilly, which does a lot for the Perl community.
  • The number of copies of the camel that O'Reilly sells are often cited as evidence of how many Perl programmers are out there.

    These are basically the reasons I purchased it as well.
