That's why I'm posting here, in a contained environment, rather than on 
some public forum. I have read and really like Ovid's "Beginning Perl" 
but in the context of my original post it adds weight to my point that 
Perl books tend to be generic and we need more diversity of subject 
matter, particularly applied Perl.
