in reply to Elements of Programming with Perl

I just wanted to bring a little attention to an old review of a GREAT book. I don't say that lightly. Elements of Programming with Perl should be recommended to many of our SoPW posters. Meant for two groups: absolute beginners and self taught programmers that need to solidify their fundamentals, Andrew Johnson gives a thorough lesson in the art of specifying a problem and coming up with a well designed solution. After just the first few chapters you already have a solid process for answering your own questions.

It's a shame this book hasn't gotten a little more attention over the years with an update but I don't think it's age will make your Perl code suffer while your problem solving skills will be all the better for reading it.
