Exploring Programming Language Architecture in Perl
by Bill Hails
Number of pages: 368
This book presents an informal and friendly introduction to some of the core ideas in modern computer science, using the programming language Perl as its vehicle. The book takes the form of a series of working interpreters for the language PScheme, which is a variant of Scheme. Each version of the interpreter builds upon the previous one, until by the end of the book the PScheme language is quite fully functional and has some interesting surprises.

Modern Perl is one way to describe how experienced and effective Perl 5 programmers work. They use language idioms. They take advantage of the CPAN. They're recognizably Perlish, and they show good craftsmanship and a full understanding of Perl.
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.
