in thread Looking for easiest book to learn Perl from (was: Doing Better.)

For those who've never seen it (i.e., wizards can stop reading now)
  • Learning Perl is also known as "The Llama Book". Randal Schwartz, the author, is known as Merlyn.
  • Programming Perl is also known as "The Camel Book".
    Both are very good. The Llama book is designed for beginners, and doesn't ask you to run before you can crawl. The latest edition is superb; I use it to teach the Intro to Perl class at WashTech.
  • Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      I guess since I was going to buy the 3rd edition of the Camel anyway I made a good pick. That is interesting to here that you teach a class at WashTech jkahn I wish I could take that class. lol. But I am not old enough to go to college and I live in Alaska. Anyway thanks for the Reply and if you have any Wash swim team articles please E-mail them to me at because my teacher is giving 5! extra credit points for every article for the next 5 weeks. Thanks -NoobiePerlist
