Advice on the best Book resources for my Tech Library on Perl?
I am looking for the best advice on which books I should have for my Pear library:
I own myself currently:
Learning Perl - O'Reilly
Intermediate Perl - O'Reilly
Perl Cookbook, 2nd Ed - O'Reilly
Perl Best Practices - O'Reilly
Perl Hacks Tips & Tools for Programming, Debugging, and surviving - O'Reilly
Now I was considering adding the follwoing books as well:
Mastering Algarithms with Perl - O'Reilly
Mastering Perl - O'Reilly
Programming Perl: Unmatched power for text processing and scripting - O'Reilly
Automating System Administration with Perl Tools & make you more efficient - O'Reilly
So what does the collective think on any of these books or what others?

I'd add Modern Perl to that list. It's available in book form as well as a free ebook.

These two are definitely worth having. The other two you mention, I do not know them.

And I agree also on Modern Perl.
I also found Data munging with Perl to be useful, but it depends what you are using Perl for.
