Wiedermal ein paar neue Perl-Buecher, die ich gratis bekommen kann, wenn
jemand einen Review drueber schreibt.

Bei interesse bitte melden (es gibt noch ein paar andere Buecher, aber
Off-Topic, kann ich auf Wunsch auch privat forwarden)

Advanced Perl Programming, Second Edition, kann ich im uebrigen auch so sehr
empfehlen (nicht nur weil da mein Name drinnensteht (endlich!) :-)

***Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook
Publisher: O'Reilly
ISBN: 0596100922
With this series of hands-on labs, you'll learn how Perl's test tools
work and how to use them effectively. Once mastered, these lessons will
help you ensure low-level code correctness, reduce software development
cycle time, and ease maintenance burdens. You don't have to be a diehard
Perl developer to use this book; you just have to want to do your job a
little bit better.

Chapter 4, "Distributing Your Tests (and Code)", is available online:

***Write Portable Code
Publisher: No Starch
ISBN: 1593270569
This handy book contains the lessons, patterns, and knowledge for
developing cross-platform software that programmers usually must acquire
through sheer trial and error. Targeted at intermediate-to-advanced
programmers, it is a valuable resource for designers of cross-platform
software, programmers looking to extend their skills to additional
platforms, and programmers faced with the tricky task of moving code
from one platform to another.

***Perl Best Practices
Publisher: O'Reilly
ISBN: 0596001738
This collection of 256 guidelines on the art of coding will help you
write the best Perl code you possibly can. The guidelines cover code
layout, naming conventions, choice of data and control structures,
program decomposition, interface design and implementation, modularity,
object orientation, error handling, testing, and debugging. Offering
only guidelines that actually work, this book presents coherent and
widely applicable suggestions based on real-world experience.

Chapter 9, "Subroutines," is available online:

***Advanced Perl Programming, Second Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
ISBN: 0596004567
O'Reilly's most high-level Perl tutorial to date, this book teaches you
all the complex techniques for production-ready Perl programs. This
completely updated guide clearly explains concepts such as
introspection, overriding built-ins, extending Perl's object-oriented
model, and testing your code for greater stability. Whatever your
current level of Perl expertise, this book will help you push your
skills to the next level.

Chapter 3, "Templating Tools," is available online:
