in reply to (Perl) Programming Books like the Camel Book

Though I did it many times here, I have to recommend Advanced Perl Programming by Sriram Srinivasan. From my point of view, he describes things how they are, explaining rules, not only creating ambiguous examples.

Everybody is different. For instance, I don't like Programming Perl, but it means nothing for anybody else.

    I think Programming Perl and Advanced Perl Programming serve different purposes.

    Programming Perl explains the language and ideas behind it, while Advanced Perl Programming gives you some ideas on how the language can be used.

    I'd recommend both.

[Spenser]: It's frustrating
[Spenser]: Perl 5.10.0
[Spenser]: It uses opkg to install software
[choroba]: 5.10.1 would be much better
[shmem]: there are so many ways thinkable to fix that situation, some feasible and some not, that I'm unable to give good advice.
[Spenser]: I installed 5.22 with opkg. I can use it with cpan. I'm actually trying to install perl-DBD-mysql, but couldn't with it. So I went back to the factory version, 5.10.
[Spenser]: So, nevermind about CPAN. I give up on the downgraded angle. I'm back to fighting to install DBD.
[shmem]: please open a SoPW. At what point is the perl-DBD-mysql installation failing?
[shmem]: do you have the mysqlclient libs on that device, for instance?
