The Web Developer's Virtual Library features an excerpt from Chapter 7 of Professional Perl Programming from Wrox Press. From the overview: "This book provides comprehensive coverage of the Perl language. It covers the fundamentals of data types and
file handling through advanced features like regular expressions, object- oriented programming, threads,
internationalization, and integrating Perl with the C programming language. The latest version of the language,
Perl 5.6, is used throughout, with commentary for those with earlier versions."
