Customer Review

on May 3, 1999
Before buying this book, I had the 'Learning Perl' book by O'Reilly, which I found not too useful to learn perl. This book, on the otherhand, is well-written, and has excellent examples. By page 100 (in a pretty lenghty 500 page book!) - and only a few hours (really!) - I had converted a korn-shell script to a perl script... I also ran a test agains the kornshell (processing a 50Mb text file) and what took 120 secs now takes 30! So, I am converted!
If you want to learn Perl, from scratch, then I would recommend this!
