Format: CD-ROM
The CD Bookshelf series stands out as one of the best ideas in the history of IT book publishing - instead of forcing overcaffeinated geeks to flip through page after page of book after book to find the answers they need, why not put a complete library on a well-indexed CD-ROM and throw in a paper copy of the book they'll probably turn to first? O'Reilly, we thank you again.
The new Perl CD Bookshelf is an incredible resource for skilled and aspiring programmers. It includes Perl in a Nutshell in physical and electronic form, as well as the Camel book, the Cookbook, and two other titles on the CD. [Note to owners of the first edition: Learning on Win32 Systems is gone now. Further evidence of Tim's commitment to Open Source, I suppose.]
Bottom line: if you want to master Perl, and you want to own five five-star books for the price of two, then get this now.

The Perl CD BookShelf is filled with all you need to go from a simple perl programmer to a perl guru. For those having trouble with the search engine applet on linux systems, O'Reilly has a fix to help you: ftp://ftp.ora.com/pub/perlcd/perl_search_files.tar.gz
Hope this helps, cheers!

A long time fan of O'Reilly books, the CD bookshelves are one of the best ideas I've seen from a publisher. If you don't mind reading onscreen these will save you money. If you do pick this up in addition to the hardcopy simply for the search capabilities. A great reference tool from any serious programmer.

I bought this in hope that the CD will have the quality that is worth the name of O'Reilly. But I was wrong. The search engine is very poor. Even though it says to search the whole body, give it an 'is', you get no result. Also the master index has a lot of flaws in it. I cannot use the section "Symbol" and "C". All the links miss the book name. All in all, this definitely is a big dissappointment to me.

because the hacker sites don't provide a zip version to download, although i can read online. but for a reference, that's very inconvenient. it is a definitely excellent reference on Perl, although the price is a little high.
