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.

    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.

[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
