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

Amarquis, I have more programming experience than Perl, but I am 700+ pages into the 1071 page 3rd edition & here are some thoughts... The book assumes a c/c++/unix background, which I have only student experience. It has an extreeme amount of "forward" referrences. (ie. See blah blah blah in Chapter 31, when I'm reading chapter 6, & 12, & 14, etc.). Beyond this, it's been very helpful, & I've only become MORE determined to gain a perl proficiency. Based on this thread, I plan on tackling the Cookbook & Best Practices next. Thanks, -Bill.
