    Typically, CPAN and Perl Monks are the only perl sites that I visit. Every so often, however, I visit and the Mason site.

    I'm just starting with perl, but in the past few months, I've found the following sites invaluable: the're chinese mirrors of O'Reilly's Safari bookshelf.

    At URL removed you'll find:
    Perl in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition
    Programming Perl, 3rd Edition
    Learning Perl, 3rd Edition
    Perl Cookbook
    Perl and XML
    Perl and LWP
    Mastering Perl/Tk

    Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics can be found at URL removed.

    And the The Linux Web Server CD Bookshelf (which includes "Programming the Perl DBI" and "CGI Programming with Perl."), is at URL removed.

    It's probably completly illegal, and O'Reilly is possibly quite unhappy with them, but they were a godsend for me

    Update: Following some discussion on the chatterbox, let me add this disclaimer: I don't have anything against O'Reilly. Some of my most cherised Perl/bioinformatics books in my library are from them. And I'll be first in the row in November when their R for bioinformatics comes out in November. But when searching for answers on perl related questions, those sites where invariable among the top Google hits.

    Update 2:To honor jZed's request I've removed the URL's. And sorry for the emotions this stirred up. I wasn't aware that what I was doing, was negativly regarded upon in the community.
      When I find sites like that, I send the URL to O'Reilly. It's not that I am such a big fan of Intellectual Property in general but in this case, O'Reilly is a smallish pubisher who supports Open Source and the authors whose pockets they put money into. In some cases, the money from the books and Safari may be the only payment the authors ever recieve for years of open source development. Disclaimer: that last sentence applies to me, so maybe I'm prejudiced :-). If you're so inclined, you might want to remove the links in your posting, but that's up to you.

      update:Thanks, bioGeek, but I for one don't regard what *you* were doing negatively, you were just trying to be helpful.
