in reply to Should I upgrade my "Learning Perl" Book?

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... :)
