The chapter will explain to you a concept, or a few concepts, and then the excercises at the end of the chapter allow you to test this knowledge out and check with the back of the book.
Combining just the right amounts of information and humour, this book is a godsend to someone who wants to learn perl.
This book is only a tutorial, and therefore a book such as Programming Perl is a wonderful companion.
Perl is a great language and I wish I used it more often. The only trouble with "learning Perl" is that it makes you want to buy it's big brother "programming Perl" (the classic Camel book)!
On the positive side the book shows several good sites you can go to for detailed help. And maybe I am hoping for too much as the description of the purpose of perl is:
"Perl is designed to assist the programmer with common tasks that are probably too heavy or too portability-sensitive for the shell, and yet too weird or short-lived or complicated to code in C or some other UNIX glue language."
