    Bad Sample Code

    It wouldn't be so bad if the code in the book worked. The only thing that seems to work is the 'Hello world' application. As soon as you move onto the next application, you're utterly confused about what's right and wrong. The code if perfectly typed in is missing quotes, the font the publisher chose to use makes ZEROs look exactly like the letter 'O,' so you're never sure which is which. There are quotes that aren't terminated. The author of the book Mark Felton also provides a personal site where you're supposed to be able to contact him in the case of these types of errors, and well, sadly, he doesn't respond. So, no support, no buy. Go and get yourself a copy of CGI Programming in C & Perl. It's a year older, and it works!!!!!!

    Deeply disappointing book!

    Much of the sample code given in this book will not compile. It looks as if much of the code was converted from C with many severe errors. This book is not much help to a beginner.
