in thread Recommendations for a self-taught Perl programmer

{snip} and second, the first edition of "Advanced Perl Programming" by Sriram Srinivasan (not the second edition, which is a completely different book).

What are the diffs between the 1st and 2nd editions? Why choose the 1st edition over the 2nd?

    The first edition is the book I read. It introduces generally interesting concepts like database mapping, code generation, the flywieght object pattern, etc. all in code examples. The second edition is a completely different book, which I haven't read.
