A good Perl book for newbies/beginners using Windows?

Ant
Hello!

I am looking for a good hardcopy Perl book for newbies/beginners
(including myself) who use Windows (not UNIX/Linux) and that isn't so
old. After talking to my Linux friends who use Perl, they suggested
these two:

1. http://oreilly.com/catalog/9781565923249/ (1997 though and mentions
Windows NT)
2. http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Pe...ref=pd_sim_b_1
(has UNIX references; from 2000).

However, my boss said "They seem a bit out of date. Perl has evolved
from 1997 and 2000. We may need something more current."

Any suggestions on recent revisions for Perl newbies who use Windows
(XP-Vista)?

Thank you in advance. :)

This newsgroup (comp.lang.perl) is defunct.
You want to look at comp.lang.perl.misc instead. (Search the old articles
for the FAQ postings.)
