I have purchased "The Perl CD Bookshelf v4" from O'Reilly. It was recommended by a friend of mine. I will be going through the book "Learning Perl v3 by Randal L. Schwartz and Tom Phoenix". And then I will go on to the second book "Learning Perl Objects, References & Modules" by the same two guys.
I also have the whole plethora of Perl resources on the Internet.
I think I am well prepared.
