Yes, but note this from my Dec97 review of it:

Learning Perl is a reasonably well organized tutorial, but it
suffers from an inordinately large number of technical errors -- the
kiss of death to a tutorial. O'Reilly's technical support group is
aware of these errors, so perhaps later printings will improve the
book's usability.

I haven't seen another edition, so I don't know if they've corrected
the errors. ...RM
