Take book 2 on your list and be very careful NOT to read it. It makes an excellent doorstop, paperweight or some such other thing. Sadly I purchased a copy on the recomendation of a friend and it is full of bad advice and bad code.

The mouse book, #1 on your list, is good, but now somewhat dated. The blue book (number 3) is a good reference, but using on its own is very limiting.

Meltzer and Michalski is useful and possibly one of the better "also ran" books.

Also look for a book by Paul DuBois - Perl and MySQL for the web, it gives lots of good advice on wiriting CGI applications beyond the simple form. Apart form that you can try most of these books on Safari, it has been useful for me so I have no hesitation in recomending it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
