Customer Review

on 9 February 2001
I bought this book solely for the XML parsing section, it explained in four lines what other documentation couldn't in 100 lines. It turns out the other chapters are just as brilliant!
If you do _any_ data manipulation with Perl then GET this book, it explains what Perl data structures(or modules) to use with what data, and then how to use that data structure...
The author writes and thinks like a programmer, so programmers can ultimately understand the topics/concepts and not just cut-paste someone elses code.
I also recommend 'OO Perl' by Damian Conway (same publisher).
These two Manning books are the only other Non-O'Reilly books I own.
