I think I'll place Modern Perl next to Effective Perl Programming 2nd Edition. I have loads of Perl books. I would not suggest this one for a beginner. Unless they have a sense of art and finesse. I've been using Perl for about seven years. Maybe since 5.8.3? Always with ActivePerl on Windows. Now I'm at 5.12.3. I have Perl things that work. And after reading Modern Perl, I have the desire to try and redo some things better. I'm not a pro Perl programmer. I just like the way Perl does things. I think context and $_ are cool. I think regular expressions make personal computing worthwhile. Since 5.8.3, there have been changes. Good changes. I changed too. I'm self-taught, and write Perl for my own uses, both at home and at work. Mainly for file maintenance and searching web pages. But if you have done your own pre-Perl 5.10 scripts, and would like a sense of where the Perl community has been going, I strongly suggest this book. On page 6, there are three code snippets, labeled "A Perl novice might multiply a list of numbers by three by writing:", then "A Perl adept might write:", and finally, "An experienced Perl hacker might write:". That's why I think Perl is neat. And this book wants to help me enjoy it.
