I wonder why you would like to follow the advice of a book you DON'T recommend, :) but anyway, learning from good code is not a bad idea.

You may start with the most famous modules. If they seem to be too hard for you - especially if they are big - then look for their author on CPAN, pick a smaller module that they have written and study it thoroughly. Then, come back to the big one.

You may continue with a Super Search in the Monastery. Look for "RFC" in titles and CPAN in the text. This way you'll see what the Monks are proposing to publish on CPAN. You won't get everything, but OTOH you don't have time to read everything, so it should be a good start.

My personal advice is to start with the modules that, in addition to good code, have also good documentation, without which any good code will soon fade into oblivion.
See Looking for Mr. Good Documentation! for some hints on well documented modules.

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.
