If you are seriously looking into Perl, the Perl CD bookshelf is deffinitely something to look at.

Version 1 of the CD Bookshelf includes Learning Perl on Win32, Perl in a Nutshell, Learning Perl, Programming Perl, Advanced Perl Programming and the Perl Cookbook. It also includes a hardcopy of Perl in a Nutshell.

This is the only Perl resource I have (except for Perlmonks of course), and I still haven't gone through everything.

The new version 2 edition includes: third edition of Programming Perl, Perl for System Administration Perl in a Nutshell, Perl Cookbook, and Advanced Perl Programming, along with a hardcopy of Perl in a Nutshell.

If you specifically want Learning Perl on Win32, try to get version 1 somewhere.

It is really easy to search for stuff on the CD (on Windows, Mac or Unix), with HTML interfaces to all the content.

Hope this helps

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
