This book covers many basic and in-depth topics of Perl and provides the initial knowledge you need to start working with Perl 6. The book does not require previous experience with Perl, although some general understanding of programming is assumed.
by Allen B. Downey - Green Tea Press
After having completed this book, you should be able to write programs to solve relatively difficult problems in Perl 6, but my main aim is to teach computer science, software programming, and problem solving rather than solely to teach the Perl 6.
Perl 6 is the sixth edition of the Perl programming language, representing a major backwards-incompatible rewrite of the language. This online book is going to introduce the reader to the Perl 6 language and its many features.
