If you've already worked through a previous edition of Learning Perl, you will probably won't get much out of the new edition. The new stuff we added about CPAN and various modules is probably stuff you already know from Perlmonks. The corrections for errata, slight corrections for perl5.8, and additional references to the Perl core documentation might be worth the price for you, but maybe you won't even notice. It's still the 80% of Perl that most people use everyday, and that hasn't changed too much.

However, check out the book in a bookstore (or in Safari Online, or something else). You can peek inside without making a commitment.

But, if you want to support a couple or three Perl programmers who make a nickel off every sale... :)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
