Adopted as the undisputed Perl bible soon after the first edition appeared in 1991, Programming Perl is still the go-to guide for this highly practical language. Perl began life as a super-fueled text processing utility, but quickly evolved into a general purpose programming language that's helped hundreds of thousands of programmers, system administrators, and enthusiasts, like you, get your job done. In this much-anticipated update to "the Camel," three renowned Perl authors cover the language up to its current version, Perl 5.14, with a preview of features in the upcoming 5.16. In a world where Unicode is increasingly essential for text processing, Perl offers the best and least painful support of any major language, smoothly integrating Unicode everywhere--including in Perl's most popular feature: regular expressions. Important features covered by this update include: New keywords and syntax I/O layers and encodings New backslash escapes Unicode 6.0 Unicode grapheme clusters and properties Named captures in regexes Recursive and grammatical patterns Expanded coverage of CPAN Current best practices… (more)

Absolutely essential for the Perl programmer. I learned Perl using this book and still refer to it from time to time. ( )

I would say that this is THE BOOK for learning Perl. Funny and easy to read. ( )

A classic. I own two copies, at work and at home. Sometimes I pick a page at random, I'm sure it will make me laugh in a page or two. ( )

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.

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. ( )

Programming Perl [Third Edition] is the most authoritative book on Perl, and the authors' prose is a joy to read. While it may not be the best book for learning Perl, it's certainly worth having on your bookshelf.

Disambiguation notice
This is the pink camel book. Do not combine it with the blue camel. The contents are drastically different. It covers Perl 4 and not Perl 5 (which is covered by the blue camel book). The language (and hence the book) changed significantly between the two. Also the pink camel contains a number of sections which were removed in later editions.
This is the 4th edition of the blue camel book, which covers Perl 5.14. Do not combine it with the pink camel book.

In addition, please do not combine it with different editions of the blue camel book. The various editions cover different versions of Perl, cover changing material, and have different co-authors.
This is the 2nd edition of the blue camel book, which covers Perl 5. Do not combine it with the pink camel book.
This work consists of copies that cannot be determined to be either copies of the blue camel book or the pink camel book, and should not be combined with either.
