I've been maintaining an amazon listmania list of Perl book recommendations.
I've just updated it a bit. It starts introductory moves toward advanced
subjects, before forking off in many different sub-topics.

Going out on a limb though... After you've worked through a good bit of
Programming Perl, the best advice I can give is to start wading through the
standard perl distribution documentation one section at a time. Perldoc is
your friend: http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.8.0/pod/perl.html.

All the documentation is usually installed during the Perl install. You can
read up on how to use perldoc by going to a shell and typing:

  perldoc perldoc

I'd recommend starting with:

  perldoc perlintro


  perldoc perltoc
