in reply to Perl Videos and Book

You will find a lot of information at Learn Perl at www. perl.org, but one book which teaches all is probablycertainly not available.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    One could argue that Programming Perl teaches the entirety of the language. (Although I'd add the caveat that, since Perl Dynamic Language, you would also need to keep current on the release documentation (perldelta) to have a complete picture of the current state.)

      Yes, it will tell you the basics of the language and by basics I mean the fundamental elements and principles. But it is hardly a book that will teach you the language.

      I know because that is the way I learned Perl and it was not an easy voyage. It is a bit like learning to speak a language with only a dictionary and a grammar book. It will tell you everything you need to know, but it will be quite a long time before you dare to go out and chat up a girl. :)
