      Comments about Perl Pocket Reference, 5th Edition:

      Perl Pocket Reference is for intermediate to advance level programmers. If you do perl programming, and have a certain question you can use this as a quick reference. Its a great supplement with the Perl 'Llama' book. This book, in its 5th Edition, covers Perl 5.14 version. Its a very organised stack of documentation. The sections are precise and related sections are well-linked. Since I have an ebook version of it, I found looking up information more easy and use it often. In its appendix sections, it lists links to various blogs and perl documentation websites. It also links to the perl forums for convenience.
