clinton has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Well, it will be my birthday soon, and I'm wanting to buy a couple of Perl (or Perl oriented) books.
I'm a self taught programmer, and I have a reasonably good understanding of Perl, especially in relation to OO, web and database programming.
But every now and again, a theoretical discussion starts which loses me completely. The theory is the bit I am missing, whether it is N-grams, B-tree, sets, sorting algorithms, mixins, etc etc.
What books would you recommend that deal with these subjects, and that would be suitable for a reasonably advanced practical programmer but an ignorant theoritician.
