Perhaps you should look in /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/pod, which from
my experience, has been better than any book I've ever seen for perl.
Try running `perldoc perlintro` and `perldoc perllol`. With exceptions
such as "old standard" languages, most free documentation that comes
with the interpreter/compiler tends to be better than any book. A
print out of perl's documentation would be far more valuable than
almost any perl book on the market.
Although I haven't looked much into any FreeBSD book, I wouldn't be
surprised at all if FreeBSD's documentation combined with
freebsd-questions would outweigh it.
