addictedToCoding has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello. I am new to the world of perl. It is known that perl is good for penetration testing. Are there any available books on using perl offensively? I am talking about a perl book just like the book on python - "violent python" in which you write hacks to control printers,phones,remotely commanding UAVs and jamming Bluetooth signals.So is there any book out there about using perl offensively ?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Given that Python and Perl are both general purpose scripting languages, sound principles demonstrated in a book that uses Python examples would be similarly applicable to Perl. Idioms may differ, but we're not talking about idiomatic programming. If you learned the subject matter in the book to which you refer, and you have learned a sufficient amount of Perl, your knowledge foundation, combined with some visits to CPAN will be everything you need.

    Look around this site. You will find plenty of offensive Perl code and many penetrating answers and meditations.

    True laziness is hard work
      "...offensive Perl code and many penetrating answers and meditations."

      Nothing but the truth.


      It seems as clear as yesterday We saw it in a dream but dream became insanity an awful gaping scream So sad to see such emptiness So sad to see such tears And heaped up leaves of bitterness turned mouldy down the years Nothing but the truth. Common words in use Hard to find excuse Harder than the truth Like Icarus we flew too high We flew too near the sun They caught us in that awful glare Our hapless throats were strung But just before the final stroke They took us victims of the rope And cast us far beyond the deep To lie in never ending sleep It seems as clear as yesterday They cast us in the deep We lie in darkest night for good Never ending sleep A never ending bitter gloom Whose darkness seldom clears A God forsaken emptiness Which fills our hearts with tears

      Good night, Karl

    If Loompanics Unlimited was still in business I would suggest you buy a copy of their catalog. They have dozens of great books on how to lead your very own one man army anarcho-peoples-revolution or how to resist Soviet occupation of the USA after WW3.
