in reply to How Many Perl Books do you Own?

(Do different versions of the same book count? I have a couple of "Programming Perl"s, for example.)

Does anyone have any good, non-O'Reilly perl books?

    Object Oriented Perl is excellent. (I do have it. :) Expect a Slashdot review very soon, as I have been writing it the past few days. (E-mail Hemos and ask him to run more chromatic book reviews.)

    Anything about Perl that comes from Manning Press is on my Must Read list now, after Elements of Programming with Perl.

    I don't know how to answer the poll question, though. Does Programming Web Graphics with Perl and GNU Software count? Programming the Perl DBI certainly does, but what about Mastering Algorithms with Perl or even Practical Internet Groupware? I'm over 8 anyway. Good thing this isn't a "How many O'Reilly books did you purchase or obtain in the past year?" question.

    I sleep with the Perl Core Language, Little Black Book published by Coriolis under my pillow ;-) - I use it nearly every day, a very good reference book.

    I started with Learn Perl for Win32 in 21 Days from Sam's Publishing. (It was a copy from work.) I found it easy to learn from as a newbie and it's great for quick reference.

    Elements of Programming in Perl by Andrew Johnson. Excellent into to programming and Perl. Good for experienced perl programmers as well.
