They use language idioms.
They take advantage of the CPAN.
They're recognizably Perlish, and they show good taste and craftsmanship and a full understanding of Perl.
A very nice book for Perl learners.
O'Reilly� Mastering Perl, 2nd Edition
Take the next step toward Perl mastery with advanced concepts that make coding easier, maintenance simpler, and execution faster. Mastering Perl isn�t a collection of clever tricks, but a way of thinking about Perl programming for solving debugging, configuration, and many other real-world problems you�ll encounter as a working programmer.
Exploring Programming Language Architecture in Perl
This book presents an informal and friendly introduction to some of the core ideas in modern computer science, using the programming language Perl as its vehicle.
Using Perl 6
This book is primarily for people who want to learn Perl 6. It teaches the basics from a Perl 6 perspective, touching on variable interpolation, datastructure use, object construction, threads, closures, symbol tables, and other core features.
This book is for people who either want to learn Perl or are already programming in Perl and just don't have the patience to scrounge for information to learn and use Perl. This document should also find use as a handy desk reference for some of the more common perl related questions.
O'Reilly� Perl and LWP
Perl soared to popularity as a language for creating and managing web content, but with LWP (Library for WWW in Perl), Perl is equally adept at consuming information on the Web. LWP is a suite of modules for fetching and processing web pages.
Perl for Beginners
Perl is an enormously popular scripting language that runs on many different operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X, and provides programmers with a robust and powerful programming language that is easy to learn, yet sufficiently complex to tackle just about any job. As such, it's a perfect programming language for those new to programming to learn.
Higher-Order Perl: Transforming Programs with Programs
This is a book written with the goal to teach Perl programmers with a strong C and Unix background how to use techniques with roots in functional programming languages like Lisp that are available in Perl as well, but less known.
Learning PERL the Hard Way: Perl Programming for Beginners
Do we really need another Perl book? Obviously yes: This is a book for people who already know how to program in another language, but don't know Perl. A book that gets through the basics as quickly as possible. How to do the fun stuff. A book that emphasizes good programming style in Perl. Many of the Perl programs are written in a quick-and-dirty style; I wanted to see if the style I have developed in other languages can translate.
Unix and Perl Primer for Biologists
This is a basic introductory course for biologists to learn the essential aspects of the Perl programming language. This started as a course for grad students at UC Davis, and we then ran it as a one week intensive course for anyone on campus who was interested (sponsored by the UC Davis Genome Center). The feedback from these courses was very positive and so we have decided that we should make it available to anyone who is interested.
