If you plan on doing a lot of Perl programming, I'd recommend picking the camel book for sure. Also, there's a few more books I'd have on my bookshelf.

  • Perl Debugged - Nice easy to follow text on things to watch out for
  • Effective Perl Programming - for when you're feet are a bit more wet. It's also an excelllent debugging reference
  • Perl Black Book - unfortunately it's currently out of print but I picked up a couple more copies on
  • The Perl Cookbook - similar to the black book and again an excellent reference for "recipies" in Perl

And the one other thing I would be lost without is the Perl TK Debugger. It's a GUI debugger that works on Linux or windows, it's free and you can get a copy here.

Hopefully that will give you some help!

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
