in reply to Re(2): How do I use Perl?
in thread How do I use Perl?

Are we talking a developer or a guy who does programming from time to time?

Usually the question of "I'm just getting started. How do I use Perl?" is a person who heard about it and wants to try it out, or a person who wants to be a system administrator and was told he has to know it, or a developer who wants to make a few things easier.

But you are correct if you have a strong programming background, the Camel book is the better choice.

But wouldn't you suggest the CookBook as well?
