in reply to Which Book

I live and breathe with the Perl CD Bookshelf which contains Perl in a Nutshell, Mastering Regular Expressions, Learning Perl, Programming Perl, Learning Perl Objects and the Perl Cookbook digitally (and searchable, too) wrapped up with a paperback version of Perl in a Nutshell.

(Version 3 was better for me, with the XML titles; YMMV.)

    The only problem with the Perl CD Bookshelf is that newer versions don't include the Mastering Perl/Tk book on the CD anymore. I was going to upgrade mine until I noticed that. If they've added it back in again I'd upgrade in a heartbeat.

    Revolution. Today, 3 O'Clock. Meet behind the monkey bars.

    I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

[Discipulus]: stupid me! I had to stay at home and do not code with the flu..
[holli]: bacause it's a syntax error
[Discipulus]: yes sorry forget and forgive me
[Eily]: for what it's worth I didn't go for the brightest solution either
[Eily]: I tried print eval '2+1/3*(2+2/5))' or print $@
[Eily]: and therefore concluded that the eval did succeed because there was no printed error :P
[Eily]: stupid operator precedence :D
