Essential pocket guide, 27 Feb. 2004
If use perl or a unix style operating system then this little book is a real gem. Unless that this, you can remember what all the funny little characters mean :-) I find myself using perl only a few times a month, so invariably when I want to do something, I know that it is possible, but I have to go searching for my camel to remind myself of the syntax.
Unlike some other pocket guides, this isn't just a reference, but actually contains some tutorial elements.
