Perl for System Administrators (by O'Reilly) may cover these topics
well. I'd second the Perl CookBook, and, given you're already familiar
with other languages, the Camel (Programming Perl) would probably be a
good fit (you could probably skip the Llama). Perl in a Nutshell is a
decent reference as well.
