I know I am OT from the original thread, but I can't keep me from saying that I don't agree with you in putting Perl for system administration in the "Learning" series.

I bought that book as soon as it was published and now it's about one year since I last read something in it, but anyway: IMHO it definitely isn't a book for beginners. Surely it explains things in a simple manner and from the ground up, but I believe that people ranging from total perl beginners to short-time newbies could run into difficulties in understanding what's going on.

But maybe I am wrong, after all it's a long time since I last open that book, and I don't have it at hand now...

Ciao!

The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).
