"Perl is used in a range of environments, but this book provides an introduction to its intermediate programming applications, picking up from where the authors' Learning Perl left off to continue the education on writing and using Perl code and modules...A top pick for anyone serious about Perl's advanced capabilities."

"Perl programmers need a clear roadmap for improving their skills. Intermediate Perl teaches a working knowledge of Perl's objects, references, and modules -- all of which makes the language so versatile and effective. Written by the authors of the bestselling Llama book, Learning Perl, this guide offers a gentle but thorough introduction to intermediate programming in Perl. Topics include packages and namespaces, references and scoping, manipulating complex data structures, writing and using modules, package implementation, and using CPAN."
-- Gordon Haverland, Edmonton Linux User Group

"As with other O’Reilly books, Intermediate Perl teaches through examples. The book builds on similar problems throughout. The examples are quick and concise. Humor and Pop references throughout make parts of the book read like a good novel. If you’ve used Perl before, and are interested in more advanced concepts and efficient programming, look no further."
