in reply to Knuth books and programming

Personally, I consider these books part of any essential library. The sorting algorithms and such are far from dated. I think you will find them well worth the investment. You may be able to find some at reduced prices (if you worry about such things) at any college bookstore that resells textbooks.

Most of what I've learned about sorting and such came from those books.

    Knuth books are some good books to use. You might also want to pick up some O'Reilly books if you're looking for specific languges ( Esp. Perl ). They've got a great section on Perl programming. I even got my Advanced Perl Programming book signed by Tim O'Reilly. As well as scoring about 5 free books from them...they're a good company. The beatings will continue until morale raises.
