Perl and I used to have so much fun together. Back in the day (2000-2010), Perl was my right hand man. I used C/C++ and SQL to write project code, and Perl to analyze, automate, simulate, emulate, innovate, prototype, test, and generally blast obstacles out of the way. Some of my colleagues and managers were frightened of Perl - it was voodoo as far as they were concerned. A manager who clearly didn't get it chided me for bringing this Unix thing into his cozy little Windows shop, "Why would you use this Perl thing when you have Visual Basic available to you?" Yes, such a question can make one wince. However, Perl got results, quickly, and Perl culture was a blast.
I switched jobs, and found PowerShell had become the socially-acceptable scripting language for the Windows side, Python was the lingua franca for the Linux side, and Ruby was de rigeur for Chef for both sides. Absent a role, my old friend faded from view. Such is life in DevOps.
As it turns out, my old friend is now even more muscular, and still quite the party animal. However, this book shows that Perl has gotten some nice new features.
To be quite clear - this is NOT a book to use to learn Perl. Stick with the Llama book for that. This book assumes that you are using it to get reacquainted, and it succeeds wonderfully at that.
