The authors do start at the very beginning, and even in a self-described "desktop quick reference" find the time to comment on less urgent--but still interesting--Perl-related matters (like how to find online help amidst the "Perl culture"). The format of the book makes sections on topics such as Perl debugging easily understandable, illustrating how to make an interactive and timesaving environment.
Of particular convenience is the outstanding section on the standard Perl modules. A four-page "quick look" allows you to easily scan through short definitions of all the modules and find the entry you're looking for. An index with full definitions for each module follows, showing you how to use each module and providing a more in-depth explanation (and often, examples). Perl in a Nutshell concludes--as you might expect--with an excellent and well-cross-referenced index. --Jennifer Buckendorff --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Plenty of room to make notes, could used more samples for the commands, but easier to use than typing man [command]Published on February 26, 2013 by Donald Nelson Holt Jr
Not for beginners but super useful if you are familiar with programming in general or know some other language. Really easy desk reference that does not take up too much space.Published on February 26, 2013 by John
This is a good reference book, but very dry. It is hard to learn programming languages in a nutshell. One needs to understand how to solve problems using what the language offers. Read morePublished on February 24, 2012 by rpv

This is a handy reference, but if you have a limited budget you should probably go with Programming Perl and the Perl Cookbook before this one. Read morePublished on December 13, 2003 by Jack D. Herrington
