in thread Is Programming Perl still relevant as a reference book?

Check out good computer stores. We have a local Micro Center that has many older editions for $2 to $5 in a clearance section. I have bought many books that way because I never know what I'll need in the future for reference.

Another good source are places like half.com to buy used and new books at a discount.

Update: Removed reference to illegal website. Sorry. -Eugene

    Some of the older CD Bookshelf versions are online several places.
    You, sir, offend me. There are no legal copies of that CD available to the public.

    Instead, you are aiding and abetting the Pirates. Have you no shame? You are taking money out of my pocket.

    {sigh}

    This is why we have no more CD Bookshelves, and why it has all moved to Safari.

      Instead, you are aiding and abetting the Pirates.

      As far as I know, piracy has never been a problem for O'Reilly. We don't do too much oversea shipping, and it's reasonably safe these days. Now copyright infringement is kind of a hassle....
