I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

      • Cookbook was the first Perl book I bought - learned my initial Perl from that and programs. That said, I'd be fine selling it now because I never use the paper version. Of the books on the CD, I only use the paper Nutshell (which is somewhat heavily annotated).

        (Mind you, for books I've not got on CD, I have somewhat heavy use sometimes.)

        What would be nice is an editor that can note what a scalar is blessed as and produce the appropriate documentation on its methods. Due to Perl's somewhat flexible OO na
