I voted for Programming Perl

(I've got the 2d edition), despite its information being largely replicated in the man pages. Since I program mostly for Windows, I needed to install Perl before I had access to the man pages; Programming Perl gave me enough useful information to convince me to do that and enough information to get started. I also currently own Learning Perl, which I found to be too basic, Mastering Perl/Tk, which is specialized (and, in my opinion, it could be better organized), and Perl Cookbook, which is handy when I want to steal some codeget inspired to find a solution to a specific problem. I still find the camel book to be useful, in that it's frequently easier for me to use a book than online man pages (especially with my randomly-prone-to-demonstrate-why-I-hate-Windows workplace desktop).

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.
