Techniques and tricks to master basic and advanced OO Perl for programmers who already have basic to intermediate skills in procedural Perl.
BooknewsConway (computer science, Monash U., Melbourne) provides novices and experienced Perl hackers alike with a guide to writing clean, readable, and maintainable Perl programs. The book begins with object orientation and Perl basics, and moves on to topics such as encapsulation, polymorphism, operator overloading, multiple dispatch and persistence. Conway incorporates examples of databases, pattern matching, multiprocessing, encryption, and debugging among others, and he includes transition guides from C++, Java, Eiffel, and Smalltalk.

Slashdot.org...a gem of a book...Superbly organized and excellently explained, this is the definitive book on Object Oriented programming with Perl. Judging from the comments of more qualified experts, we agree that this book belongs on the shelf of any serious Perl hacker.
Development ExchangeObject Oriented Perl is well written and communicates a lot of technical know-how to its readers, both in terms of specific language features and general design concepts. You'll put this book down with more knowledge of modular Perl than you had when you picked it up. Whether object-oriented Perl programming is right for your projects is another question-but there's no better decision helper than Conway's guide.

Object Oriented Perl based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
when i saw the glowing reviews from schwartz and christiansen on the back of the book, i figured it had to be something special. let me just say that mr. conway blew threw the perl primer (about the first 70 pages) so quickly and carelessly that i had to read it again. i found several coding errors in those first 70 pages alone. after that, i wasn't about to trust anything he said in the rest of the book, even if i COULD understand what he was talking about. if there's another object-oriented perl book out there, i need to find it NOW!!!
