I'm starting to get out of the begginer Perl phase and as my internship work demands more knowledge out of me, I would like a book that would help me get to that intermediate level. Basically, the only book I really had about Perl was a "Perl & LWp" and "Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide."
I would like a book that would teach me a great deal with more security and efficieny in my scripts. For example I want to know everything about tainting and other topics on Perl that I'm not familiar with that will benifit me as a programmer. Does anyone have a recommendation? Would Programming Perl 3rd edition be good enough? Or maybe perhaps Advanced Perl Programming?
