"Intermediate Perl, 2nd Edition By Brian d Foy, Tom Phoenix, Randal L. Schwartz"; O'Reilly Media
Written as the followup to the "Llama book" this book introduces more advanced concepts of the Perl programming language to take you from writing simple scripts to larger programs that are split up into modules as well as contributing such modules to the community via CPAN.
The concepts covered include modules, references, objects, testing and contributing to CPAN.
This second edition, brings the language coverage to Perl 5.14 with tit bits from Perl 5.16. It also introduces two (2) new chapters covering creating perl distributions as well as an introduction to Moose the Perl OO system.
Coming from 3 veterans of the Perl language, the book is well written and a great resource for any one wishing to improve their grasp of the language.
This is definitely highly recommended for anyone who uses Perl, even owners of the first edition will love the second edition.
