JFarr has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Monks, I have the o'rielly Programming Perl book. Is there a better reference to cod ein Perl-ese? Some of the responses I've received are very compressed, from a C++ standpoint and I would like to code in a Perl fashion, instead of Perl in a C++ fashion. What about a good Perl ide? Thanks for your recommendations.
