Well, there are 2 (assuming you don't already know Perl).

Perl from scratch:
1. Learning Perl aka Llama book http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lperl3/
PErl & CGI:
2. OFFICIAL GUIDE TO PROGRAMMING WITH CGI.PM http://www.wiley.com/legacy/compbooks/stein/

You can get all the software free from search.cpan.org, and all of Perl lang online at http://perldoc.perl.org/

personally I wouldn't recommend buying "learning perl". (unless you are a totally inexperienced programmer).I bought it when i started perl but one soon outgrows it and it becomes useless. I haven't opened it for years. "Programming perl" and the "perl cookbook" are both better and also still useful to me as reference works. "perl5 pocket reference" is brilliant and very cheap too.
you can find reference for CGI.pm easily enough on the web also.

(you can also find the above books online if you google them, not sure how legal they are though)

Thanks for suggestions, I just ordered Perl cookbook
Does anyone have suggestions for a good perl book about web crawlers & spiders and that sort of things ?
