  1. Llama (Learning Perl)
  2. Bighorn (The Perl Cookbook)
  3. Owl (Mastering Regular Expressions

Cookbook provided higher value for me than Camel, perhaps mostly because of the way it's organized. But both are invaluable.

So can we make this a quartet, or -- better yet -- a quintet?

If so, Camel joins my list, along with either Perl Debugged or the Debugger Pocket Reference

Ooops. Sextet, anyone?

No, make that "septet" because I'm sure to think of another as soon as I post this.

Seriously, Perl is blessed with what seems to me an extraordinarily wide selection of excellent books (and, of course, a few that would have better served the world had the trees chopped down to make paper to print them had been left to grow.

Update (in response to the comments above re MRE): Regexen are but one tool among those that make TIMTOWTDI a watchword for Perl.. but they are a tool. The Perl coder without broad and deep knowledge of regexen is suffering a handicap on the same order as the proverbial fighter with one arm tied behind his back.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
