Incredibly useful and very clearly written
First off, this book assumes an intermediate knowledge of perl. With that out of the way, this is the best programming book that I own. It is perfectly organized and the explanation/documentation are crystal clear- written line by line. Each chapter starts off with a very basic program and goes to an advanced program at the end of every chapter. If you are a UNIX sys admin or an aspiring one BUY THIS BOOK!Was this review helpful?

The one you have been waiting for...
This title has taken its place on my shelf next to the Camel and Object Oriented Perl ... This is not a terse, vague coverage, but a thorough, detailed instruction on many aspects of network programming. Perl documentation provides the syntax of using sockets, but Stein shows how to actually use them ... and seems to gloss over no sublety... All major points illustrated *effectively* with source code and working examples ... As an experienced Perl programmer, I consider this book indispensable ... one of the most useful books I own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
