( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've been working with Perl for a while now, though I still consider myself a novice. I've worked my way through the Camel Book, and the Perl Cookbook. I've been using that level of skill for a while, and I think I've done pretty well -- for a novice. Now, however, I find that I'm longing for the Deeper Secrets of Perl -- the sort of advanced technique that can bring me from "I love Perl, and use it frequently" to "I live, breathe, eat, and dream in Perl".

As first steps, I've been reading the Monastic Meditations, I've ordered Advanced Perl Programming and Mastering Algorithms in Perl. Where do I go from here? What should I focus on learning? Are there general skills and knowledge that will help me progress with Perl? Are there other good books, web resources, etc. I should be reading?

Also helpful would be stories of how other Monks broke through the barrier from "I know Perl" to being an accomplished Perl developer.

Thanks, as always, for aiding my enlightenment!
