Also, let's add a sentence or two explaining why we think the resource is useful.
To make your addition, please reply to this topic and I will add your suggestion to this first post.
Top 10 Perl Resource List
(in no particular order)
- Sam's Teach Yourself Perl in 24 Hours
- This book is very useful for getting a quick overview of the language in order to start being productive with it relatively soon. It has clear explanations and good examples and tries to keep things as simple and straight forward as possible.
- Programming Perl, by O'Reilly
- This was written by Larry Wall, the creator of Perl
- Higher Order Perl, by Mark Jason Dominus
- "Higher-Order Perl is about functional programming techniques in Perl. It's about how to write functions that can modify and manufacture other functions."
- Modern Perl, by chromatic
- Intended to help readers use Perl 5 to it fullest extend and to craft programs that are "shorter, faster, more powerful, and easier to maintain..."
- Advanced Perl Programming, by O'Reilly
- "This book covers complex techniques for managing production-ready Perl programs and explains methods for manipulating data and objects that may have looked like magic before. It gives you necessary background for dealing with networks, databases, and GUIs, and includes a discussion of internals to help you program more efficiently and embed Perl within C or C within Perl."
- "It's the watering hole of the Perl community. It's full of helpful monks, including the authors of the best Perl books and the people working on the core language; you'll even occasionally see Larry Wall himself posting there." ... "If there's something you don't understand in Perl, if you want to know what's considered to be the state-of-the-Perl-art or "best practices" in Perl, if you want to know what's happening in the Perl community, or if you want to see where Perl is going, then PerlMonks is the place to go." ~ dsherohman
