I find Perl to be a great language to use for both small-scale one-liner type tasks and as well a for large-scale multi-file applications. However, I need reminders of its usage details every now and again. While I could read the relevant manpages via perldoc, they are somewhat dry and technical (they are manpages after all!). I found these recent tutorials/references much more easier reading.
- Essential Perl One-Liners (PDF) – a talk presented by Walter C. Mankowski at YAPC::NA 2010
- The top 10 tricks of Perl one-liners – a blog entry from ksplice.com that goes through some practical perl one-liner shorthands.
Modern Perl Object Orientation
Moose is the Object Oriented foundation for Modern Perl. I found the following Moose presentation by the eminent Perl hacker RJBS very informative. It seems to nicely describe all the latest functionality of Moose (as of August 2010).
