P0w3rK!d has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Cross-Platform Perl
Any thoughts on this book?
Is there anyone else out there that could point us all to some cross-platform resources of which we could all benefit. I'm sure there are plenty of monks out there with Win+Unix Perl questions...let's hear them!

    When I posted this node, someone recommended the book, but I posted a request subsequently to a perl mongers list for more information and got this reply. Do you know if there is a newer edition?

    perldoc perlport is still the definitive reference for Perl portability as far as I'm concerned, though you can probably find some helpful nodes here with Super Search.

    Update: It seems that London Perl Mongers mail archive is having server problems. The jist of the reply was that one of the mongers had taught himself Perl 4 from this book, which made no reference to use strict etc.
