Overview

Immensely popular Perl combines the best features of C, key UNIX utilities, and powerful regular expressions. Perl is commonly used for web programming, as well as email and Usenet news filtering. Fast becoming the system administrator’s scripting language of choice, Perl is also useful for file and directory manipulation, database access, and a broad range of daily system operator chores.

This second edition emphasizes the cross-platform nature of Perl. Throughout the book, author James Lee promotes Perl as a legible, sensible programming language and dispels the myth that Perl is confusing and obscure. Perfect for the beginning Perl user looking to gain a quick and masterful grasp on the language, this concise and focused book begins with the basics and moves on to more advanced features of Perl, including references, modules, and object-oriented programming.
