Perl in a Nutshell - A Desktop Quick Reference is a book written by Ellen Siever
, Stephen Spainhour
, and Nathan Patwardhan
, and published by O'Reilly

. This book is basically the equivilant to having detailed man page

, in a written form.
This book is quite excellent. When doing any in depth perl programming, I find I turn to this book often. It's wonderful to have handy, easy to look up things, and a great reference.
