Hello Monks, I'm about to finish "Beginning Perl" by James Lee.

http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Perl-Second-James-Lee/dp/159059391X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217873468&sr=8-3

Incredible book - I can't say enough good things about it. My questions is, what book should I read next to further my knowledge. I figured "Intermediate Perl" by Randal Schwartz

http://www.amazon.com/Intermediate-Perl-Randal-L-Schwartz/dp/0596102062/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217873468&sr=8-4

would be the next logical step. However, there doesn't seem to be any chapters on CGI or DBI...that seems weird. I thought the Perl Cookbook by Tom Christiansen

http://www.amazon.com/Perl-Cookbook-Second-Tom-Christiansen/dp/0596003137/ref=pd_bbs_sr_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217873468&sr=8-5

would be more focused on examples rather than building on the fundamentals. But when i looked in the book, it seemed like it teaches you about a concept, then follows up with a real world example. This is really appealing to me. Any advice?

Use Kubunutu/KDE/Debian? http://kubuntuway.net
