Thanks for the informative review, good sir - it reinforced my impression-gleaned-elsewhere that Perl Medic [perlmedic.com] belongs in my library (and brain).
That 'elsewhere' also mentioned Perl Debugged [perldebugged.com] as a somewhat similar/related good book to have. Your thoughts? Possibilities of your reviewing it in the foreseeable future?
It's a real shame that Perl Debugged seemed to go largely unnoticed when it was published.
Yes, I thought it was rather nice too.
One possible reason why it may have been overlooked - I've come across a few people who confused it with the similarly titled but (IMHO) really rather bad "Debugging Perl" by Martin Brown (basically just a rehash of Perl's POD).
I didn't realise Perl Debugged was out of print. Sad.

/me admits to doing that.
It's the only Martin Brown book I own :(
