I have read Programming Perl 2nd and 3rd Ed., the Perl Cookbook, and a
few others (and own some of them too).
IMHO, Programming Perl 3rd Ed (aka the Camel book) is the by far the
most complete resource for Perl (it will be a while before you can out
grow this book). The 3rd Ed has a lot more content than the 2nd Ed and
I highly recommend buying it.
If you do not have any programming experience in any other languages,
you may find Programming Perl daunting. "Learning Perl", by Randal
Schwartz, Tom Christiansen & Larry Wall may be a good option if this is
Btw, I recently purchased "Object Oriented Perl", Damain Conway, Manning
Press and found it a good read. But you need to be comfortable with Perl
before you can grok this.
