If you are seriously looking into Perl, the Perl CD bookshelf is deffinitely something to look at.

Version 1 of the CD Bookshelf includes Learning Perl on Win32, Perl in a Nutshell, Learning Perl, Programming Perl, Advanced Perl Programming and the Perl Cookbook. It also includes a hardcopy of Perl in a Nutshell.

This is the only Perl resource I have (except for Perlmonks of course), and I still haven't gone through everything.

The new version 2 edition includes: third edition of Programming Perl, Perl for System Administration Perl in a Nutshell, Perl Cookbook, and Advanced Perl Programming, along with a hardcopy of Perl in a Nutshell.

If you specifically want Learning Perl on Win32, try to get version 1 somewhere.

It is really easy to search for stuff on the CD (on Windows, Mac or Unix), with HTML interfaces to all the content.

Hope this helps

    I think I would always go for the (new) 2nd version of the Bookshelf, first because it contains material describing perl 5.6 - and that's probably what you want to use in the future. Second I think the selection of books is better from a long term point of view.

    So if you specificaly want Learning Perl on Win32 then buy it (or have a look in your local library) and if you are serious about looking into Perl, then the bookshelf CD, version 2 is the way to go.
