    Advice on the best Book resources for my Tech Library on Perl?


    Hello everyone,

    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?

    Might also consider Higher Order Perl , and perhaps Mastering Regular Expressions.

    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.

    I définitely agree on Higher Order Perl , and perhaps Mastering Regular Expressions. The first one is available on line, so that you can get an idea of it, and I think the second is also available on line, but am less sure of it.

    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.
