Perl The Complete Reference, Second Edition

I've never been a fan of very big books, I always think they've been padded out with extra information that shouldn't be there. But this one, it just isn't the case. It's got everything you need to know about Perl in here, right down from the basics of variables and syntax up to things like debugging and the Perl compiler. A lot of this stuff I've never seen before - even in the Perl documentation, and there are some great tips on using Perl for different jobs. My favorite has to be how you can use the Perl compiler to help optimize and clean your code - not by compiling, but just by looking at some of the output it gives. This one will be sat on my shelf for a long time.
