NAME
       perlbook - Books about and related to Perl

DESCRIPTION
       There are many books on Perl and Perl-related. A few of these are good, some are OK, but
       many aren't worth your money. There is a list of these books, some with extensive reviews,
       at http://books.perl.org/ . We list some of the books here, and while listing a book
       implies our endorsement, don't think that not including a book means anything.

       Most of these books are available online through Safari Books Online (
       http://safaribooksonline.com/ ).

   The most popular books
       The major reference book on Perl, written by the creator of Perl, is Programming Perl:

       Programming Perl (the "Camel Book"):
		   by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen, and Jon Orwant
		   ISBN 978-0-596-00027-1  [3rd edition July 2000]
		   http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596000271/

       The Ram is a cookbook with hundreds of examples of using Perl to accomplish specific
       tasks:

       The Perl Cookbook (the "Ram Book"):
		   by Tom Christiansen and Nathan Torkington,
		       with Foreword by Larry Wall
		   ISBN 978-0-596-00313-5 [2nd Edition August 2003]
		   http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596003135/

       If you want to learn the basics of Perl, you might start with the Llama book, which
       assumes that you already know a little about programming:

       The tutorial started in the Llama continues in the Alpaca, which introduces the
       intermediate features of references, data structures, object-oriented programming, and
       modules:

   Free (as in beer) books
       Some of these books are available as free downloads.

   Other interesting, non-Perl books
       You might notice several familiar Perl concepts in this collection of ACM columns from Jon
       Bentley. The similarity to the title of the major Perl book (which came later) is not
       completely accidental:

       Programming Pearls
		   by Jon Bentley
		   ISBN 978-0-201-65788-3 [2 edition, October 1999]

       More Programming Pearls
		   by Jon Bentley
		   ISBN 0-201-11889-0 [January 1988]

   A note on freshness
       Each version of Perl comes with the documentation that was current at the time of release.
       This poses a problem for content such as book lists. There are probably very nice books
       published after this list was included in your Perl release, and you can check the latest
       released version at http://perldoc.perl.org/perlbook.html .

       Some of the books we've listed appear almost ancient in internet scale, but we've included
       those books because they still describe the current way of doing things. Not everything in
       Perl changes every day.	Many of the beginner-level books, too, go over basic features and
       techniques that are still valid today. In general though, we try to limit this list to
       books published in the past five years.

   Get your book listed
       If your Perl book isn't listed and you think it should be, let us know.
