First of all the Cookbook is not just for amateurs and quick hacks. I find it to be a very valuable resource.

As for good software development, most of that is not very specific to any language. The fundamentals of programming well don't change just because you are programming in Perl now. However among the classics on that topic, the one that I know of with the strongest Perl bent is probably Pragmatic Programmer, The.

For pointers on good Perl style, well books like Effective Perl Programming are meant to address that.

But still there are a plethora of good resources out there. If you do not know the material in them, all of the books that I just mentioned are probably worthwhile to read. Not all at once, of course, but start somewhere and start learning...

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.
