The Perl CD Bookshelf contains 6 bestselling books on a CDROM, with a bonus paperback copy of Perl in a Nutshell. The electronic copies in HTML format are:

  1. Perl in a Nutshell
  2. Programming Perl (2nd Edition)
  3. Perl Cookbook
  4. Advanced Perl Programming
  5. Learning Perl
  6. Learning Perl on Win32 Systems

I was actually looking for a paperback copy of Learning Perl on Win32 Systems, but I finally bought this value for money book, The Perl CD Bookshelf. Futhermore, I could easily port the electronic HTML copies to browser enabled handheld devices such as Psion, Palm and Win CE devices, in the near future. I wonder whether O'Reilly's license agreement fine prints would prohibit that.
