What makes an “advanced” Perl programmer? Not just familiarity with technique but clarity about what works and what doesn’t. Not just strong coding skills but the ability to make the most of CPAN. Simon Cozens’ Advanced Perl Programming, Second Edition is about gaining all that knowledge.
A comprehensive revamp of Sriram Srinivasan’s older book by the same name, this book reflects key trends in Perl development while focusing more heavily on practical problem solving. Cozens’ elegant solutions range from introspection to object serialization, templating to Unicode.
