Overview


The Perl Resource Kit -- UNIX Edition gives you the most comprehensive collection of Perl documentation and commercially enhanced software tools available today. Developed in association with Larry Wall, the creator of Perl, it's the definitive Perl distribution for Webmasters, programmers, and system administrators.

The Perl Resource Kit provides:

* Over 1800 pages of tutorial and in-depth reference documentation for Perl utilities and extensions, in four volumes. The books in the Kit are not available elsewhere (or separately) and include:

  • Programming with Perl Modules, by Nate Patwardhan with Clay Irving
  • Perl Module Reference (two volumes), compiled and edited by Ellen Siever and David Futato
  • Perl Utilities Guide, by Brian Jepson

* A CD-ROM containing the complete Perl distribution, plus hundreds of freeware Perl extensions and utilities -- a complete snapshot of the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN)-- as well as new software written by Larry Wall just for the Kit.

Essential Perl Software Tools All on One Convenient CD-ROM

Experienced Perl hackers know when to create their own, and when they can find what they need on CPAN. Now all the power of CPAN -- and more -- is at your fingertips. The Perl Resource Kit includes:

  • A complete snapshot of CPAN, with an install program for Solaris and Linux that ensures that all necessary modules are installed together. Also includes an easy-to-use search tool and a Web-aware interface that allows you to get the latest version of each module.
  • A new Java/Perl interface that allows programmers to write Java classes with Perl implementations. This new tool was written specially for the Kit by Larry Wall.

Experience the power of Perl modules in areas such as CGI, Web spidering, database interfaces, managing mail and USENET news, user interfaces, security, graphics, math and statistics, and much more.

Perl has been described as the "duct tape of the Web." This linguistically malleable scripting language allows you to "glue" programs together that function seamlessly on the Web or as system administration solutions. Long a tool of UNIX sysadmins, Perl is now the dominant language for creating dynamic Web pages.

The Perl Resource Kit is the first comprehensive tutorial and reference documentation for hundreds of essential third-party Perl extension modules used for creating applications and more. It features commercially enhanced Perl utilities specially developed for the Kit by Perl's creator, Larry Wall. And, it is all brought to you by the premier publisher of Perl and UNIX books and documentation, O'Reilly & Associates. Like the bestselling Programming Perl, this is a definitive product that all serious Perl programmers will want to have.
