Yes, more examples!!! "Learning Perl" is the best book I've ever read, (I have about 20 books) multiple examples explaining each thing is great. And all the foot notes keep it interesting (i.e. I don't fall asleep so easily)
With "Programming the Perl DBI" I'd like to see more examples.
And I agree that a lot of the O'Reilly books are ambiguous to me.
I need a lot of pictures and diagrams, I'm really a visual learner. The diagrams in "Learning Perl" that explain Hashes and other data structures are helpful. But I'd like to see a thick book with many diagrams and pictures on data structures. I'm having a really hard time figuring arrays of hashes, hashes of hashes, references of hashes... and ways to access/manipulate the data elements.
