in reply to Learning the Deeper Secrets of Perl

I've ordered Advanced Perl Programming and Mastering Algorithms in Perl.
These two, should fill you for a while and even give you the direction for next learning. While you are there, also read "Object Oriented Perl", "Perl for Sys admin" and "Network programming with Perl", depend upon the area that you are interested in.
A repository of your skill set can also be a good starting point. You might be interested at some point, is how you have been managing what you have learned. Where do you put it to use etc.

    I would also recommend you "Mastering Regular Expressions", not only Perl, but with a long chapter on it.

    I think regexp are a very important part of Perl itself, and mastering them can help you to avoid some headaches.

      That book is recommended reading for many, many reasons. I urge everyone who considers themselves a serious programmer, Perl or otherwise, to read it.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

      MRE has been on my bookshelf since I bought the Camel book. I haven't worked all the way through yet, but I agree it is indispensible.

      require General::Disclaimer;
