    1. The "camel" book. This book should be everyone's initiation into Perl. It is a great way to get your feet wet and start to see the scope of what Perl can do. Read this one first, "Intermediate Perl" 2nd, for object oriented programming in Perl. If you're still around after that, grab the "Perl Cookbook" to learn some nifty tricks.


    2. Библия perl "Camelbook" - это один из тех источников к которому обращаешься постоянно в работе с Perl. Самое фундаментальное, основательное и, что немаловажно, человекочитабельное издание легендарной книги.Всем начинающим, и продвинутым разработчикам рекомендуется в качестве наст [...]




    3. This book is a mixed opinion kind of thing, a lot like the language itself. I think that if you find yourself strangely attached to Perl, you will also experience a strange attachment with this book. It feels as organic and chaotic as the language design and using it as a reference is a lot like using Perl to solve a problem - it's all there, it's just arranged in potentially ridiculous ways.If you are considering using a printed copy of this book as a reference in this day and age, you should c [...]


    4. ewww, perl! I hope GoodReads recognizes this as a valid 0-star review, and not a lack of decision. Someone should have put a bullet in Larry Wall's head two decades ago and spared us all an awful lot of messianic nonsense, but then we'd be without Steve Yegge's incredibly awesome "Ancient Languages: Perl" article, with this epic quote of excellence:"Perl 6 is not the answer. Damien gave perhaps the most compelling PowerPoint presentation in the history of technology when he visited us at 2 year [...]


    5. There are some really good gems of wisdom in this, such as the meditation on the three qualities of a good programmer (laziness, impatience, and hubris, along with a warning against false laziness, false impatience, and false hubris).And it taught me the value of highly opinionated language designers.However, some of the particulars of the opinions-- and the attitude with which they're presented-- reveal a big part of why I haven't been able to stomach much Perl for the last 8 or 9 years (e.g. " [...]


    6. Would you believe it if I said that a programming manual was compusively readable? Pick up this book: I particularly recommend Chapter 27, "Perl as Culture" -- including the subsection on "Perl poetry."Oh -- it's also a really useful reference, as should be expected, because the author is also the creator of the programming language.Along with the camel, you'll probably want the llama.


    7. I read this book back when it was only a couple years published. I laughed really hard and puzzled through the programming. I didn't have what it took to stick with Perl. I moved quickly into areas where I had better prospects. Recently, I've returned to dabble a little in areas where Perl is a solid choice and am having all these fond memories. I'm not sure I'll pick this up and read it again just yet. I also remember the llama book being more helpful getting me off the ground and I might revis [...]


    8. Perl was my first language after not having written any code for 25 years and ASM being my weapon of choice during the 8-bit 6502 days.This book not only taught me about Perl, but filled in a lot of the gaps in programming theory that I'd missed when I taught myself as a teenager. It works well as a tutorial guide, as a reference, and as an intro to Comp Sci text. I have it at my elbow whenever I work in Perl.


    9. The "Camel Book", as this book is often called, is the Perl Bible. It's not only an exhaustive reference, but clearly written any *funny* to boot. The humour pervades the text, making a sometimes dry subject much more approachable.[return][return]No Perl programmer can afford to be without this book, and anybody considering writing a technical reference should refer to this book to see how it's done.


    10. I don't really like programming in Perl anymore, but if you need a reference that has a light dose of nerd humor, this is the one to get. Do note that the vast majority of what you'll find here is also in the man pages (most of the time with identical text) so make sure you've looked there first.


    11. Strange obsession that natural language syntax with all its ambiguity is something to aspire to. Many people love this book but I never really understood why. Information about a topic is scattered all over the place. I think I got more use from the "Perl Pocket Reference". Today I think the online Perldoc and many Perl blogs are easier to use than this book.


    12. I give it a marginal 5 stars, mostly for all the use I've gotten out of it. The organization of the book is not the best, for example it would be nice if other keywords and reserved symbols (like, say, "while" or "{") were covered in detail in an easy to find ordered reference section, as the functions are. But it's still the best Perl reference out there.


    13. The original PERL book, written by Larry Wall, the designer/creator of PERL. Probably a bit dated now, I read this many years ago when PERL was first released and I needed to teach myself this "new" language. As with all the O'Reilly series of books, this is a good introduction to the language that will get you up and running in short order.


    14. Excellent reference work. It was better, back in the first edition, when the programming examples were co-bound, but it's really getting so huge (all the useful libraries) I can see why they don't do that any moreTOWDI!


    15. This book has more information in the first few chapters than most entire perl books. I am a big fan of the "logically break things down to every last detail" genre of programming manuals (see The C Programming Language, Programming in Lua) and this book is one of the great examples of it.


    16. The book gets four stars, because I've gotten a ton of use out of it. However, the language gets 2 stars, because its syntax is so ridiculous that I can never remember it and have to read this book everytime I want to munge text.


    17. Granted, I did not read this cover to cover, but very close to it.For anyone hacking away at perl, this is the bible.



    18. Wah, ini buku primbon Perl! Bagus sekali buku ini, untuk menjadi pakar pemrograman bahas Perl. Sayang, buku ini lebih sering jadi hiasan saja di kamar ku ;-)


    19. To be fair, I love Perl. I learned mostly on the 2nd edition, but this is the one on my shelf. Seriously in-depth but still easy to consume and then use as an indexable reference.






    20. Too big to read right through and too poorly organized to be a reliable reference. SAM's Perl in 24 Hours is a much better beginner's book, IMHO, and the online documentation is definitive.


    21. excellent book. I really enjoyed this. It basically brought me up to speed in about a day on perl. This is a classic in my library.


    22. This was the text for a Perl class and appropriatelyso as it was taught by Tom Christiansen one of the authors.Contains all the perls of wisdom you should need for thislanguage.
