A must-have in your Perl library
If you are doing Windows programming, and you've been suffering through trying to figure out how to enumerate the machines and users in your domain(s), change passwords, gather accounting information, etc., then you MUST have this book. And you should probably book mark the author's homepage,..., as it has a slew of programs and utilities.

The Biblical Epic of Win32 Perl Programming
All I can say about this book, is that when I teach Perl courses for Learning Tree, I always take out about five minutes from the course to thoroughly recommend this book to all of our NT administrators, other users of Win32 Perl and anyone else who happens to be in the vicinity. I've found it absolutely essential in the last year or so, on many occasions, and carry it with me on every assigment, come rain, snow or shine, along with "Advanced Perl", "The Perl Cookbook" and "Programming Perl". I use it as more of a reference, than as a tutorial, but basically it's a lifesaver. Recommendation: Buy.

This is the rest of the story
This book has cleared up a lot of mysteries about Win32 specific topics. Made using Win32 extensions easy. Great examples. Just be aware that this cannot be your only PERL book on the shelf. This is about interfacing with the Win32 platform, not really about how to program in PERL. You'll also need a more general PERL programming book such as "PERL by Example", if you're just starting out. I've got both and am constantly bouncing between them.
