If money is an object

I recommend you check out the free online resource first, you can start with Beginning Perl by Simon Cozen
You can then check out the free sample chapters from O'reilly
Try the safari bookshelf for 14 free days
Use perldoc
Ask here
Read Perl articles
Wait for "Higher Order Perl" as it should be free-ed anyday now
And finally, if you just have to buy something, check out the Perl cd bookshelve, I think it may offer better value for the money, and they all seem to include "Programming Perl"

    Bad timing, I'm a poor student now, but would have bought it in a few weeks otherwise. :-)

      No problem; I'll just delay posting it until December.

      Always glad to be of service!

    This is actually true.

    I decided I wanted to make the book into a wiki. In the last couple of weeks I've acquired and installed MediaWiki (this is the software that powers Wikipedia) and hacked in the features I want. Then I discovered that my computer was too slow to run MediaWiki usefully, so I've replaced my computer.

    The next step is to import the book into the wiki. There are two phases to this. Phase one is to translate the book into MediaWiki markup. Phase two is to break it into pieces and import the pieces into the database.

    I hope I'll get this done in the next week or two.

    But I have made a lot of progress very recently---things are moving along.

    Thanks for your attention.

      In this way, can your book be translate to order languages ? Any one would be free to its ?

        I guess so, but I hadn't thought of it before. That would be very exciting!

        I don't know what the legalities are. The book will not be under a free license. If you're really concerned, I can put you in touch with my publisher.

      Dominus,
      If you have mentioned this on the list, I apologize as I haven't seen it. Do you intend to include the things that "didn't make it in" when you publish it in Wiki format?

      Cheers - L~R

        Do you intend to include the things that "didn't make it in"
        Since it's a wiki, I plan to include anything and everything.

        One of the motivations for making it into a Wiki was that I wanted to have a place to put all the stuff that keeps occurring to me as I read the book.
