The Perl Cookbook, ISBN 0-596-00313-7, is a book containing solutions to common short tasks in Perl. Each chapter covers a particular topic area ("Strings", "Ties, Objects, and Classes", "CGI") and is divided into around a dozen recipes each on a particular problem ("Reversing A String By Word Or Character", "Accessing Overridden Methods", "Managing Cookies"). Each recipe has four parts: "Problem", "Solution", "Discussion", and "See Also".
The Perl Cookbook is written by Tom Christiansen and Nathan Torkington, and published by O'Reilly. The Perl Cookbook inspired the PLEAC (Programming Language Examples Alike Cookbook) website, which translated the code snippets in the Perl Cookbook into other languages: Python, Ruby, Guile, Tcl, Java, and beyond. O'Reilly went on to publish other Cookbooks inspired by the Perl Cookbook's format, including Java Cookbook, Python Cookbook, CSS Cookbook, and PHP Cookbook.
