If you mean the first edition (aka the pink camel), described in 1991 as "an authoritative guide to the hottest new UNIX utility in years", you'll be about 15 years behind the curve. Though a wonderful and treasured historical work, this first edition describes a Perl without references, without modules, from a prehistoric era before the CPAN roamed the Earth. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to buy the latest third edition instead.

    Yes, it's the 'guide to the hottest new unix utulity'. It weighs less than half the 'nooks and crannies' version which appears to weigh more than my laptop (I browsed it in a bookshop). I've also been given a pink 'desktop reference'. I came here from tcl so the curve is no problem. Thanks.
