shajiindia has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Beloved Monks,

I just want to improve my Perl programming skills and I would like to know your kind opinion and advice on good books and online resources from beginner perspective particularly regarding data structures and algorithms in Perl.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    It's not a Perl book (it dates from before Perl was invented) but I strongly recommend:

    Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs, Niklaus Wirth, Prentice Hall, 1976, ISBN 0-13-022418-9

    Regards,

    I think that this is a newer edition of my goto book on algorithms. Unfortunately, I cannot verify it at the moment, since it is sitting on my office shelf at home.

    There is also the classic The Art of Computer Programming by Knuth, but that might be a bit heady.

    I am not sure if you want info on how to design algorithms and data structures or how to code those design in perl. Other responders have concentrated on the design. For coding details, most of us would benefit from an occasional review of perl's own documentation. Use perl's tool perldoc to read the following pages: perldata, perlref, perlreftut, perldsc, perllol.
