  • but I don't know if I should read a basic algorithm book first

    For most Perl users, I'd suggest the other way around. Read Mastering Algorithms with Perl first, and then if there are particular algorithmic areas where you want to get more depth then go to Cormen et al.

    We aimed to have enough theory to allow you to make an intelligent choice without overwhelming the practical aspects. I.e., it acts as an engineering book, showing you how to do the various operations in Perl.
    • I second that. I have no CS background and found the Wolf book to be very illuminating, and easy to read. It's one of my top Perl books, sometimes I even refer to the recipes for non-Perl stuff :-)
