in reply to Is Programming Perl still relevant as a reference book?

While most of what I find useful is available through perldoc, I have copies of the first, second and third edition sitting on my shelf, and I'll likely own a copy of the fourth edition when that comes out. There are topics in the book that are simply easier to find information on by skimming the index and finding the content I need.

Besides the camel book, the two most valuable Perl books on my shelf are probably Freidel's Mastering Regular Expressions and Conway's Perl Best Practices

    Looks like our taste in perl books is very similar! Those two are my faves as well! (Not so much the topic of this thread, though I do own it)

    I like computer programming because it's like Legos for the mind.
