5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 1 April 2003
I bought this book several years ago when I'd a lot of programming knowledge but no knowledge of writing programs for the web. I found it excellent and immediately was able to write simple CGI scripts.
After several years of working with ASP I've come back to CGI and found this book just as invaluable as the first time round. Although it explains things from the very basics, it does cover intermediate topics too and is definitely a good starting point for learning CGI when you know how to program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners 4 Dec 2003
By Dikaios
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I needed to learn Perl and CGI really fast. This book really saved me. Even thought English is not my native language this book was really easy to read and it covers all of the things a programmers needs to make a "common" web page with perl. It is the best for what it is ment to be. The best for beginners buy it with closed eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars For any level from newbies to experts 5 Oct 2000
By A Customer
I downloaded a preview version of this book whilst Jackie was still writing it and I had no knowledge of CGI/Perl. This book is a life saver. It takes you from the beginnings of Perl and leaves you with an excellent foundation for learning more advanced topics in future. It's priceless to the newcomer and an invaluable reference for the expert. How good is it? Well, let's put it this way, after six months intensive study, I submitted my BSc Computer Science project which was written soley in Perl and I got a B grade -- all thanks to Jackie! What are you waiting for? BUY THIS NOW!
