Default MEL Tutorials?

Anyone have any reading material for me on the subject of MEL?

I spent a bunch of time looking at the MEL section of the forums and am interested to learn more. For the exception of the Help files, which are actually pretty helpful, anyone know of any Mel tutorials or resource sites?

Cheers!

Ya DT ave a couple of MEL DVDs and a Python one, the artists guide to MEL DVD is newer and although it's not supposed to be as indepth as the Intro to MEL DVD it goes through all the basics and that the intro covered plus some added extras.

well I took a look at most of what you guys have suggested. And Frankly a lot of that content is geared towards people who've not programmed before, or have little understanding of how things relate to MEL. The Maya help files seem to be a lot more useful to me, and much less expensive lol.

Thanks for the heads up everyone.

I still would suggest the book that I posted up, its really good and goes into making plug ins using the API and C++ as well as MEL, it gives you a really good understanding and is well worth it for reference alone.
