in reply to Text Parsing Book

Given that parsing text is one of Perl's core competencies, that may be a question without a really-good, on-target answer...
      ...or, I may just be iggerant.

However, for what you've described (at least as I understand it), you may be well served by parts of the "Perl Cookbook" and "Mastering Regular Expressions" (both pub by O'Reilly).

And if the rust is really heavy (or "free" is really crucial)

    If free is really crucial I strongly suggest checking to see if your institution has any books available online via the library (or even if the local public library does), or if there's a subscription to available. I've found such resources very helpful in multiple areas.
