Though this is something very basic but I would like to know about some books on perl which begin from very basic and go till the very advanced concepts basically on packages, modules and oops.

    Once past, or during, the information found in the books currently suggested, this is the book on Perl OOP:

    Object Oriented Perl

      The book was released in 1999.

      Enoch was right!
      Enjoy the last years of Rome.

        And that is not a bad thing, in my opinion.

      Thanks for reminding me, but this time around I am more interested in Packages, Modules, Libraries, and OOPS. Is there any book which deals with these concepts exclusively. Thanks for your help.

        Two books come to mind, in that case. Both are good. Intermediate Perl (from O'Reilly), and Modern Perl (chromatic's book). I think that Intermediate Perl is probably a better choice for getting started with packages, modules, libraries, and object oriented programming. Modern Perl is great too, but probably as a next step.

    Intermediate Perl delves into modules & OOP, but does't focus exclusively on these topics.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
