in reply to The Camel and the Panther

The Panther is decent, but I would pick up Damian Conway's book on Object Oriented Perl published by Manning -- much more complete and detailed.

Also, along the lines of "complete rewrite" you might want to check out a book by Martin Fowler titled "Refactoring"; it might give you an insight into a different way to approach retrofiting existing code.

    Thanks, to both the above posters. Eventually I will have to check out the Damian Conway book. But, I can only devote so much time to research before I have to start 'doing' :)

    I think you're right, I should probably also do a bit of research into refactoring techniques before attempting the rewrite.

      If you can only read one, read Conway's -- better written and more complete.
