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

I hold in my hand a Finnish translation of The Camel Book, borrowed from the library. One look at the table of contents set my heart in motion, fluttering in anticipation, and reading the first one hundred pages already proved the book to be worth its price. There is no question about it: I must have a copy.

The only sign of age for now has been the recommendation of using Altavista -- not Google. But this is perfectly fine, and not something to hold against the Book.

    You might keep a copy of Damian's Perl Best Practices nearby, just to keep you on the straight and narrow. The Camel has some habits like using package global filehandles, 2-arg open, indirect object notation, etc., that you may or may not want to get into.
