Cookbook, too; perldoc -f is always handy for what the camel book offers. (and paper? I stopped killing trees to write programs just as fast as I could ;)

My real answer, though, is "whichever applies to what I'm doing at the moment and has what I don't know well enough yet." That was "Programming the Perl DBI" most recently. Dunno what it'll be next.

    Yes, but I think you missed the question. If you were only allowed to have one Perl book - which would it be?

    Or to put it another way: which of those listed (or not listed) will give you the most of what you need as a Perl programmer?

      While I voted for the Cookbook, I have to give props to "Writing Perl Modules for CPAN" for getting me to write to a rigorous standard. I haven't contributed to CPAN (yet) but it has definitely paid off for me and my coding team.
