Pick up a book from amazon.co.uk

I use all of these books on a regular basis for maintaining and improving my web site, running my home system and the Predictions League, and inevitably at work. They're all excellent reference sources rather than 'How busy dummies do X in 21 days for idiots' books, so don't buy them if that's what you're after - but if you want an excellent reference book, these are what you're looking for.

Programming Perl Programming Perl by Larry Wall, Tom Christansen and Randall L. Schwartz. The standard reference guide for all Perl programmers, from first principles to more advanced topics.
The Perl Cookbook by Tom Christiansen and Nathan Torkington. Hundreds of examples, problems, solutions and tips that continue and extend the foundations in the Camel book. Perl Cookbook
Mastering Regular Expressions Mastering Regular Expressions by Jeffrey Friedl. Everything you could possibly need to know about regular expressions and the subtle differences and additional features that are available in Perl, awk and 'standard' (i.e. ed/sed) UNIX regular expressions.
sed and awk by Dale Dougherty and Arnold Robbins. An extremely useful and comprehensive guide to the basics and the more advanced use of these UNIX filters, covering all of the standard variants. sed and awk
HTML - The Definitive Guide HTML and XHTML - The Definitive Guide by Chuck Musciano and Bill Kennedy This is what taught me HTML (the first edition 5? years ago covered Netscape 2 extensions :-) and has been well updated over time. Great reference, though I was a little bit sick of Kumquats by the end of it.
Dynamic HTML - The Definitive Reference by Danny Goodman. I've not done a huge amount of DHTML - lack of widespread browser support for most of the really useful features being a key reason, but this gives excellent coverage, and is worth the price for the fact that you get a detailed reference of CSS/HTML/DHTML/DOM in the same book: invaluable for cross-referencing. Dynamic HTML - The Definitive Reference
JavaScript - The Definitive Guide JavaScript - The Definitive Guide by David Flanagan. Excellent coverage of the language, how to support multiple versions and types of browsers and how to hide all that sort of crud without ending up with a lowest common denominator solution.
UNIX Systems Programming for SVR4 by David A. Curry. An excellent general reference to SVR4 programming, with mentions for all of the major variants. Not quite as comprehensive as Stevens, but slightly easier to carry around. UNIX Systems Programming for SVR4
Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment by W. Richard Stevens. A weighty tome, but worth the strain of lugging it around. If you're doing any amount of semi-serious systems work, you can't afford to be without this.
TCP/IP Illustrated Vol 1: The Protocols by W. Richard Stevens. Doing serious network programming? Don't have this book? Get another job, cos you don't know what you're doing. TCP/IP Illustrated Vol 1: The Protocols
