`Mastering Perl/Tk' is a big book, weighing in at over 700 pages, so it's a bit cumbersome if you keep finding yourself thumbing through the pages.
Like all of O'Reilly Pocket References, the Perl/Tk Pocket Reference is small, perfectly formed and contains pretty much all the information you're likely to need.
If you use Perl/Tk a lot, then you shouldn't have to think about whether or not you need to buy this, and it really will fit in your pocket, unlike it's big brother!

This booklet is a companion to the Learning Perl/Tk book. Being new to Perl and having as my introduction Learning Perl and Programming Perl I anticipated the same high quality from these two books(learning Perl/Tk and Perl/Tk reference) I was saddened by the first but cheered by the second. If you want a guide you are probably best to buy this and read the man pages. I would not waste my money on the bigger book.

This little pocket guide is very, very useful, as there is soo many parameters to remember, it becomes especially useful.
After reading the Learning Perl/Tk book, this little pocket reference takes over and you'll never have to look at Learning Perl/Tk again.
Great Buy.

Built for Small Trousers 14 Jan. 1999
By Jack England - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While desperately hanging on for Mr O'Reilly's 'Learn Perl/Tk', I needed another fix of Perl and up popped this microscopic manual. For such a fantastic language, possibly the basis of all future non-web GUI development, there is a surprising lack of material out there on Perl/Tk, but this book does sterling work to plug that perldoc gap. As an Oracle DBA on Solaris, I now have more GUI database access tools than you can shake a slider at, and most have arisen from my scavenging of ./demos/widget, 'Advanced Perl' and this tiny reference. Once you get the hang of the foreshortened syntax, it's good to be able to flick from widget to widget without trawling through heavy indexes. I do have two complaints though; one, this pocket reference could've contained far more on 'Tiler', 'Table' and a few of the other more esoteric widgets - you could double the size of this book, and still fit it in an ant's lunchbox; two, if Mr O'Reilly delays the release of 'Learn Perl/Tk' again, I'm going to have to learn super Visual Basic J++ on Windows 98 and to hell with the consequences :-). Seriously though, this pocket reference has saved me hours of tracking down camera-shy Perl/Tk FAQs, and if you don't lose it through a small hole in your trousers, it may do the same for you. Top work.

As quick references go, the organization is pretty good. Covers pretty much all you need to remember the syntax and keep you going through those long nights of programming frenzies.
