in reply to Which Book

There is little need to buy a book on Perl. The documentation that comes with Perl is top quality. Hopefully the documentation for Perl 6 will be of similar quality when it is released.

    I heartily agree with you that the documentation available online for Perl is top notch. But I would still recommend buying some books. Books tend to explain approaches and techniques in a way that seldom appears online. I use online docs for reference, but books and Perl monks for expanding my skills.
