Couple of points about your list.

Perl Object-Relational mapping: Class:DBI

Class::DBI could probably fill the entire book, but that would do a disservice to the other great O/R frameworks out there. Not to mentions the fact that the subject of O/R mapping is a wide and varied topic which is as much theory as it is implementation.

That said, a Class::DBI book would be nice :)

Perl web application frameworks: CGI::Applicaiton, Maypole, CGI::Prototype, etc.

Don't forget about Catalyst, I have not tried it myself, but I have heard nothing but good things about it. I also think that this subject would not fit easily into one book, and separate books per-framework would probably be best.

How to develop, test and maintain large perl projects.

I agree very much on this one. While merlyns book is great, it only covers so much. I would love to see a good book which really delves into large scale design/development/testing/maintainence in any language for that matter.

perl for application testing: WWW::Mechanize, Win32::IE::Mechanize

IIRC chromatic just collaborating on a book on perl testing. I would guess that it has this type of stuff in it.

Anyway, just my 2 cents. Nice list :)

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.
