    I seriously doubt that the website has permission from the publishers to put those books online. I'm fairly certain those are illegal copies -- don't use them! Support the Perl publishers and authors by buying your books. Several members of the monastery are Perl book authors and like everyone else they need to make a living -- I doubt they'd appreciate people pirating copies of their books. I know that merlyn, TheDamian, davorg, and chromatic have Perl related books out and I think japhy and Dominus have books on the way. There are probably other authors in our community too -- support the community, not pirate book sites.
      I just reported the original URL to permissions@oreilly.com. I'd appreciate it if you keep that address around to report any others as well.

      Freakin' pirates. Sheesh. Steal these books, and you don't get any more.

      update: Oops.... while that email will work, O'Reilly prefers you send to infringement@oreilly.com. Sigh. Why wasn't this on their contact web page? {grin}

    Any Perl book I can't take to the can with me isn't worth reading.

      Although I have a laptop that can (and does) meet that requirement, I'd never stoop as low as to steal from those I've come to depend upon and respect.
