On-Line References for Perl Programmers
Below are a few sources for information on Perl programming you can find on-line. This list is by no means exhaustive. See also the list of published books.
- Unix man pages. When logged into eos or other unix system, type man perl to see a long list of man pages available on Perl topics. For example, to see the manual for perl functions, use man perlfunc. For a description of data structures in Perl, use man perldata.
- The Perl Programming Language main site. A good place for beginners would be the Learning Perl section. The Perl Programming Documentation website has all the Unix man pages, plus it is well-organized, web searchable, and cross-referenced with hyperlinks for more efficient lookup.
- Higher Order Perl (downloadable PDF of book, or individual chapters).
- Perl Design Patterns - wiki style repository, mostly of advanced topics
