zdog has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This is not really a question about Perl, but is more of a question about how to learn Perl.

What magazines are there that I can subscribe to that deal with Perl and other languages, such as C and C++?

      It depends what you mean when you say you want to learn programming. Dr Dobbs journal is excellent but very advanced/weighty/in depth, I would not recommend it to someone who wanted to "learn" programming i.e. a novice. When you've learned the basics elsewhere then Dr Dobbs is an excellent place to continue.

      Just my 0.02


      I like The Perl Journal particularly because it's handy having hardcopy sometimes. My only (really minor); complaint is that it's only quarterly.

    Honestly the best source is O'Reilly. They are no-fail. Check out their "Learning Perl" book. It is pure Gold. O'Reilly is infamous for their tech books. When they don't know a certain section they go straight to the source. The forward is by Larry "The Man" Wall for Learning PERL. It's about 30.00 dollars, and has a Camel on the front.
