in reply to Perl (specific) Algorithms?

For a general view of "things done well in Perl", the best book I can recommend is Effective Perl Programming by Joseph Hall and Randal Schwartz (known around the monastery as Saint merlyn).

In particular, the chapter on "Idiomatic Perl" talks about Schwartzian transform, Orcish maneuver, and many other structures that are rendered very elegantly in Perl.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    This is a great book. I have a coworker who owns it. He let me borrow it and many things that just weren't 'clicking', just made sense all of a sudden. I am going to buy a copy for myself. I highly recommend this book. It's short, concise, to the point, clear, <insert something else good here>.

    Update

    Visit Bookpool, you can get this book for $22.50.
