Product description

From the Publisher

The book promotes the use of Perl as a programming language, encouraging the creation of legible and sensible programs so as to dispel the image of Perl as a confusing and obscure language. In other words: Don't worry, whatever your current experience level in the world of Perl, this book has something for you.

It covers both basic and advanced aspects of Perl, Apache modPerl and Perlscript for use with Wintel systems and stresses the cross-platform nature of Perl, with extensive examples and techniques.

Format: Paperback
This book gives an excellent grounding in Perl, assuming little prior programming knowledge. The chapter on regular expressions is especially lucid and clear. For learning how to write standalone perl applications this is fine. It would be nice perhaps to have a more systematic summary of data structures and refererence syntax though. However once the book starts covering Perl applied to databases, oo-perl, cgi scripting etc
the book is suddenly written with much higher expectations of the knowledge of the reader. For CGI scripting the CGI scripting 101 by Jaqueline HAmilton is more comprehensive and easier to follow.
Nevertheless if your budget doesn't stretch to buying several of the o'reilly perl books this book will get you to a stage where you can develop quite complicated programs.

Very good book if you're interested in learning Perl/CGI. I've been very pleased with all of the Wrox books I've read (Beginning PHP4 is highly recommended). It goes through the whole language and everything is clearly explained. I'd say the best way too learn Perl/CGI :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic introduction, sadly out of print. 6 Nov. 2011
By Odd Bodd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very, very good introduction to Perl, with plenty of exercises with solution! (critical for learning a new language. It is such a shame that it's out of print.
Unfortunately, it doesn't cover the Perl debugger in any depth. Despite the fact that coverage is a bit old, it is quite adequate to get started and be very comfortable with the language. I wish it was available on Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginning Perl. 8 Jan. 2013

Covers early Perl and is , I believe, more informative than books covering more recent Perl versions, and more in depth where newer books assume you already know perl.
