Perl Book

I need a good online tutorial, or even better a book on perl5. the book should also come with software to run perl on windows 98.

thanks in advance,



RE: Perl Book

If you hit the "Next 10 Threads" button 2 or 3 times, Robherc asked the same question a few months ago. Quite a few pointers there to on-line resources.

As far as books go, though, any of the O'Reilly books. The Learning Perl (or Learning Perl on Win32) and Programming Perl books are the ones to start with. As far as a Win98 version of perl goes, go to http://www.activestate.com/ActivePerl/default.htm to get the most up to date version. It's a fairly hefy download via modem - about 5.5Mb - but worth the wait :)

Try informit.com
They have books online. The full versions. And it's free.
