    Added! Thanks.

    That was the book that I used! It's very good for newbie data mungers (as I was).

    I always reccommend Ovid's Perl tutorial for beginners looking to muddy the water with CGI:

    http://users.easystreet.com/ovid/cgi_course/

    which is something I picked up from Dan Puro, in case I'm not a trusted source

    You should add the "HTMLified Perl 5 Reference Guide" http://rexswain.com/perl5.html

    It is fantastic for quick references when you're in the middle of big jobs and don’t have the time or the need for perldoc

    Using perl to cordinate database and crawling, spider

    What the best way to coordinate a sql database with crawling, spider over the web using perl. In other words, useing crawling and spider logic to work with stored information on the database and maybe even update that database information. Almost like building a virtual think tank.
