The Barnes & Noble Review
If you’re clued in to the Perl community, you’ve seen Randal Schwartz’s work everywhere. Hey, he did coauthor Larry Wall’s original Programming Perl, making him the go-to guy for magazine publishers seeking Perl wisdom. Now he’s brought together his coolest ideas from years of columns. Intellectually, you know Perl can do just about anything. This book will really bring it home to you.

Schwartz’s solutions cut a wide swath across Perl’s capabilities. Text searching and editing. HTML and XML processing. CGI programming and loads of other Webmaster stuff (from DBI to a really simple, handcrafted “poor man’s load balancer”). You’ll find plenty of useful stuff here -- but even if you didn’t, you’d learn tons of stuff about Perl. If only all programming authors explained their code this well! Bill Camarda, from the March 2005 Read Only
