I have been away from perl for a long time. Need suggestions for getting back in the game!

PerlCritic is great (along with the PBP book mentioned by others). I run it through all my code now and it's dragging up the quality of my code all the time. (Perltidy is also handy to try and ensure the code is in some way standardised)
