The list of errata is 12 pages long! Way too many mistakes.,

This review is from: CGI Programming with Perl (Paperback)
I bought this book hoping that I could learn CGI programming from it. I have already worked through learning Perl which was good & I have Programming Perl as a reference. I am now about half way through this book & there are so many errors in it that I have ended up wasting a lot of valuable time. The list of errata on O'Reilly's site for this book is 12 pages long & I have found several that aren't listed there yet.
This book is not up to the usual O'Reilly standards. Save your money.
