And, (re-inforcingly, or emphatically or somesuch):

For General Reference, to me (YMMV, as demonstrated above), the "Little Black Book," Perl Core Language, is indeed right up there with perldoc... . I can cheerfully forgive its omissions (I mean, c'mon, how many times does one need to hear the USUW mantra?) and even those few sins of commission ascribed to it.

And I'd go a lot of places without my Amex card that I would not go without my copy of the Pocket Reference to the "Perl Debugger".

    I am 55 year old man and my interest in programming started when my son was doing some thing on his laptop and i asked , son what you are you doing . His reply was this is programming and you are too old for this. I recomend in perl beaginning perl
      I recommend you replace the son; sorta' like s/son/$new_and_less_error-prone_son/.

      Oh, right; that's not easy to do... and maybe his age-ist comment and rudeness have their roots close to the tree from which they fell? I certainly hope not, and see nothing in your post to support such an untoward notion... so, what now?

      Got it! Whip thru "Beginning Perl" and then whup his butt with code he can't match!

      BTW, I am considerably more aged than you, young whippersnapper!

        Brother, Your advice is well taken . Though my son is brilliant programmer in c and c++ and damn good in embedding and his perl knowledge is limited because of speed issue . I am also a engineer involved with town planning and developing certain new cities but programming when challenged by my son though in a very polite mode was too tough. Six months back I tried c and when I reached pointers I crashed my computer three times and then one of my friend advised to learn perl and after studying about 5 books in perl I challenged my son that can you start perl in interactive mode in windows and he could not reply and i have done in a single linar
