in reply to Re learning Perl

Are you new to Perl or new to programming? If you have programmed before and just want to pick up Perl, forget Intermediate Perl (somehow we had all managed to learn Perl before this title was introduced). Instead, get these:

  • Programming Perl
  • Object-Oriented Perl (oldy but goody)
  • Higher-Order Perl (this one will make you think)

    I definitely agree that the Camel book (Programming Perl) might actually be the way to go, especially if you have a good previous programming experience in another language. The two other books are really really good, but I do not think that they are really an answer to the OP question. Perhaps for a bit later. BTW, Higher Order Perl is available on line (just as Modern Perl, so that it is possible to get a gist of it before buying them (this at least what I did, I read both of them, and then bought them in paper edition, I considered they were definitely worth my money).
