in thread (Perl) Programming Books like the Camel Book

For C/C++, I heartily recommend C: The Complete Reference It is what is says: a complete, no-nonsense reference to C with all the information you'll ever need, and none you don't, organized with impeccable logic and pragmatism. Herbert Schildt's C++ tome is quite worthwhile as well.

Please, please don't recommend Herb's bad books on C. They're written simply, yes. They're also written simply wrong. I refer you to ##c/Freenode's wiki stating why.

[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
choroba has a small USB lamp
[ww]: ++ all (phony labels re "gaming"
[1nickt]: ambrus perhaps you know where the keys are?
