( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Respected Monks,

I have been dabbling with Perl once in a while. I have automated a few things at work. However, there are many a times when I feel getting more acquainted with Perl will do me good as I will be able to write better scripts. Furthermore, in current economy and job market, for a storage admin, knowing Perl really well could also be considered an added advantage. And for that, I will be really thankful if the benevolent monks could help me with the questions below.

Good Books - Any suggestions or pointers would be immensely helpful.Yes, a quick google search could reveal more, but I am looking for some books that the monks here consider worthy.

Choice of OS - All of the Management workstations we use are Windows Based. Though I have some familiarity with Linux, would it help if I learn Perl on a Linux Box? Is there any advantage in doing so? I don't think that it would matter to recruiters if I use Linux or Windows to write Perl scripts but in case it would, I would be glad if someone could point out so (or otherwise).

Foremost apologies if any questions asked here appear irrelevant. I am just trying to find ways to get really get good at Perl.

Aeterna Est Perspectum Cognitio
