This book provides a useful reference to the most often used constructs in Perl programs, as well as command-line options to perl, the Perl compiler, and the Perl debugger. There are some notable topics missing, for example, the perldoc and perlbug commands. Additionally, there is vital information missing, for example, that "last" and "next" do not work in do {} while blocks, and what will happen if you leave off the optional "len" parameter of the substr function. The book could also use a section of tips that suggests the use of "use strict" and the -w option to help debug programs, explains how to search the FAQs with perldoc, and gives guidelines for posting to the Perl newsgroups. What this book is missing most is an index. If you want to look up a function but you don't know what it does, you have to revert to flipping through the pages. Because of these omissions, this book is best for the programmer who is already adept at Perl and has other Perl references.

At $5-6, this is very affordable and a necessity when you work at more than one location (home and office) but only keep one set of books. Though sometimes cryptic with notations, I find it to be quite complete and easier to use than thumbing through a complete reference book.
The book does nothing more than nudge your memory and sometimes show you language features you knew nothing about. For the latter, a complete reference is required to use the feature (or some tedious experimentation). I expect nothing more from a pocket reference.
The author has grouped the language components into sections and there is a TOC. However, I would augment the TOC with an index - I tend to use a pocket reference to find a specific item rather than an entire group.
I would buy the next edition of the book if it were to contain an index and embolden the function names in certain sections to make scanning the pages a bit easier.

When I got this book about a year or so ago, I was hoping for a handy reference to all of the 'difficult to remember' perl syntax. Specifically a nice reference on regular expressions, formats, common idiomatic programming (e.g.: sorting a hash by key or value), file tests, sprintf formats, etc.
Instead you get a terse listing of most perl functions, regardless of if you'd ever use them. No syntactical hints or examples. No hints as to what they do. No hints as to how to accomplish what you want to do.
You're better off making your own reference card(s) from a conglomeration of Programming Perl and the Perl Cookbook (both excellent books). Even the online (perldoc) reference is better than this book.

As a Perl programmer I often need to look up a word or command to see how it is used. This reference makes it tough because it is organized by categories, instead of alphabetically. So if you're not sure what a command does - you'll look forever trying to find it. The book could also use a highlighted index along the side of the book like "Perl in a Nutshell" (This is the book you SHOULD get instead). They should expand the reference to include minor examples as well. Out of all the O'Reilly Perl books, this is the one I find myself going to the least - when it should be an indispensible reference...

This book is little more than a list of perl methods to help jog your memory. If you're fluent in perl but sometimes need to remember the name of a method, this book can help you. But you'd better be able to remember the proper syntax on your own, since the book doesn't include it (granted, perl is fluid enough to make that an easy guess too). If you want a language reference, this book isn't it. It's like carrying a set of flash cards. If you don't know it to begin with, this book won't help you learn it. Even as a reference I found it lacking.

I have yet to find any of the O'Reily reference books to be useful. They are poorly organized, and it's REALLY hard to find answers to quick questions. I LOVE almost all of the reference companion books. I'd say that you should save the dough on this reference and just buy another copy of the "Perl 5" camel book unless you're desperate for a more portable size.

This is a great book for people who know how to program and are just learning Perl. If you don't know how to program, then forget about it.
You really can't beat the price. If you really want to know Perl, you should really go for the big book. This is a great reference to accompany the full reference.

As the other reviewers mention, the book is poorly organized and lacks an index. Additionally, it is cavalierly incomplete in places. For example, the definition given for "\n, \r, \f, \t, etc." is "have their usual meaning" (p. 21).

For those who already know how to program and just want to know the syntax of PERL, this is THE book! Because of this book I am also buying O'Reilly's JavaScript version of this series.

This is a great little book for those who already know perl, but don't program in it enough to remember it all. I always carry it in my bag. Not the best book for the beginner.
