This is a top book for anyone learning the basics of Perl,
By A Customer
This review is from: Learning Perl (Paperback)
Having started reading this book as someone who had the impression that Perl was difficult to understand and hard to code, I am now enlightened and will be using Perl extensively on my web sites. The explanations were clear, concise and injected with humour. It has completed altered my view on Perl and I cannot recommened this book highly enough. Regular expressions are covered briefly but do need a book by themselves (as published by O'Reilly) and a reasonable knowledge of programming is useful to follow some examples.
This book is very nearly the dog's bits. :)
