1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had in mind

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had in mind, 12 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Perl Cookbook (Paperback)
Being a Perl beginner, this book is too hard for me, things I knew and learned I found out on the net.
This Book is maybe a must have for people who's work is writing perl applications all day... For me, writing little programs to process text, this book is too hard...
You also need to have unix/linux background.
Maybe I should have bought a beginners book, but I saw the 5 stars and read some reviews the book was very good...
I only recommend this book to advaced programmers.
