3.0 out of 5 stars Write only code!, 26 April 2013
This review is from: Learning Perl (Paperback)
Not a bad book, though it can be a little hard to find what you want once you get beyond the initial learning stages and actually want to write code. What I don't understand is why anyone would want to! A dreadful language. It used to said that it is easy to write "write only" code in C, but perl is 10 times worse!

I must have a later version of this than some reviewers; there were very few spelling and punctuation errors. I think the random characters must be an artifact of the conversion to an ebook; no author types that badly! However, misuse of the apostrophe seems to be endemic. I recommend that all budding authors get "Eats shoots and leaves" and refer to it constantly until they understand both how to punctuate correctly and why it is important.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 1 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On my Kindle Fire HD, nothing worked. It couldn't find my location and couldn't even display the map. It was free, so I can't say it was a waste of money, but it was certainly a waste of my time. Uninstalled.
