Well, I don't want to sound like an advert for O'Reilly, but another option is their Safari bookshelf. Costs me $15 a month and I have instant access to all the O'Reilly books (as well as books from other publishers such as Addison Wesley and Microsoft Press). The books are updated whenever errata is found or a new edition comes out. It's great for when I need some specialized knowledge for a project, but don't want to buy a whole book for just a few pages of explanation.

There are a few restrictions such as only 10 books at a time on the shelf and you have to keep a book on the shelf for 30 days. You can even buy tokens that allow you to download a chapter in PDF form, great for getting appendices that contain command syntax. If you really must have the paper version, you can order it at a discount.

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.
