    && an equally interesting question: which set of books would be close to sufficient for covering perl development.
    || put another way: if you could (had to!) bring 5 perl books with you on a far far away coral island, which would you pack in your luggage...
    -- allan

    update My own list would look like this:
    (1) Learning Perl -- even tho' it's a beginners book, it's still often the first one i grab to lookup how to slice a hash or flag a file test...
    (2) Programming Perl -- i wouldn't go anywhere without the bible. The book was tough to read, but haleluja! when i find myself in deep trouble, mother larry comes to me, whisper words of wisdom...
    (3) Perl Cookbook -- There's so much gold in this book for everyday program problem cracking, that i've switched from browsing it to reading it, front to back, and finding new revelations every time i bend over...

    Now it's getting more difficult. I choose
    (4) Advanced Perl Programming -- for it's good explanations of complex data structs and persistense plus code eval and closures without which it's hard to do any serious perl programming
    (5) Mastering Regular Expressions -- because at least 10% of the programming i do, is really done for me by regex'es, that's a real big gem in the perl crown.

    Now of course the OO, functional (HOP), GUI (TK), comp. sci. algorithms stuff all has it's merits, but if i HAD to choose... And then again, even the most remote coral sandbank has a web connection these days, so i can always hook up to perlmonks.org and get my answers there. No sweat<g>
