I can't vote for any of those. The "Perl Pocket Reference" is the book I've used orders of magnitude more than any other.

After that my reference is ActiveState's HTML version of the documentation: "ActivePerl User Guide".


DWIM is Perl's answer to Gödel

[Corion]: Meh. I get the feeling I should post a call-to-action for people to test their modules with the upcoming 5.26 (or 5.25.latest), as it seems that the smoke testers don't really weed out modules that fail without . in @INC
[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
[Corion]: Ah. The magic invocation is set PERL5OPT=-M-lib=. (equivalent of no lib '.';
[Corion]: )
