A new standard has been set.
The holy trinity of Perl books is now complete. Programming Perl, Perl Best Practices, and now Higher-Order Perl. With these, I am ready to go forth and preach perly wisdom to IT departments everywhere. This book is not merely a book of perl recipes, but rather is an excellent text in applied computer science, but from a Perl perspective, not from an ivory tower of relatively obscure theoretical languages. Reading this book feels like hanging out with a favorite professor. This book can be embraced by the dedicated Perl hobbyist as well as the seasoned programmer. I think there is something in the book for programmers of all levels of ability. I believe this book has set a new standard for programming texts.Was this review helpful?

Based on preview, this book will EXCELLENT!
I read through the preview chapters of this book as they were released by MJ Dominus. This book is a MUST for perl programmers interested in taking their coding to the next level. Better yet, unless he's made some changes prior to publication, this book doesn't waste time with 'intro' chapters and the like. It's perl programming meatiness from page 1 all the way to the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
