Want to learn Perl? Any Perlmonger will tell you where to start -- with “the Llama book,” Learning Perl. Now’s the time: It’s just been thoroughly updated for Perl 5.8 and reorganized to be even more effective at teaching Perl novices.
No introductory guide can cover all of Perl, but Learning Perl cover all you need to get seriously productive: scalar data, lists, arrays, subroutines, I/O, hashes, control structures, strings, sorting, processes, and more. This edition’s additions include a new chapter on Perl’s invaluable CPAN archive, plus significantly improved coverage of regular expressions.
Learning Perl’s exercises have been refined through live instruction to thousands of students; they’re truly worth your time. They’ll go a long way towards helping you achieve this book’s core goal: not just to teach you Perl but to transform you into a Perl programmer. Bill Camarda, from the September 2005 Read Only
