Item description for "A. W. Pink's Studies in the Scriptures, 1926-27, Vol. 03 of 17" by Arthur W. Pink...
Outline ReviewIf you've ever wanted to learn more about Web protocols so you could build custom client-side tools to automate tasks--or just so you have a better understanding of what's happening behind the scenes--then Web Client Programming with Perl is the book for you. Wong explains HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) requests and socket calls, then shows how you can use the LWP library for Perl to retrieve Web pages, parse HTML, check whether a server is responding, and more.
Product Description Web Client Programming with Perl shows you how to extend scripting skills to the Web. This book teaches you the basics of how browsers communicate with servers and how to write your own customized Web clients to automate common tasks. It is intended for those who are motivated to develop software that offers a more flexible and dynamic response than a standard Web browser. Using this book, you'll learn how to:
Automate repetitive queries on the Web
Detect broken hyperlinks on your site
Write simple "robots" that traverse hyperlinks across a site, and across the Web in general
Most of the examples in this book use Perl, a versatile and portable language that is already familiar to many CGI programmers and UNIX power users. The book does not teach Perl, but the techniques used should be easily followed by anyone with some programming background and can be adapted to whatever language you choose.

More About Arthur W. Pink
Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on 1 April 1886 and became a Christian in 1908, at the age of 22. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (the occult gnostic group which became precursor of the New Age movement, popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.
Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink emigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. He left there after only two months and began his first pastorate in Silverton, Colorado. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell (8 January 1893 – 17 July 1962), who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina.
In January 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures. Its relatively small circulation list of around 1,000 included English-speaking Christians worldwide and became the basis of most of his published books.
In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Moving to the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, Pink died of anemia in Stornoway, Scotland on 15 July 1952.
After Pink's death, his works were republished by a number of publishing houses, among them, Banner of Truth Trust, Baker Book House, Christian Focus Publications, Moody Press, Truth for Today, and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living. Pink is left out of many biographical dictionaries and overlooked in many religious histories.

Reviews - What do customers think about "A. W. Pink's Studies in the Scriptures, 1926-27, Vol. 03 of 17"?
WCP? No experience? Start here. Oct 23, 2008
When I found this book years ago, it opened up a new door for me. There was literally nothing out there on the subject, let alone one that addressed the needs of a novice like me. The writer clearly knew who his audience was. If you are the kind who has a firm grasp of GET, POST and so on, you probably don't need this book. Otherwise, if you want to DRIVE on the internet on your own, this book is the one. I'm sure it's still very relevant. It skips the stuff that might confuse you (and there is a lot more of that nowadays).
Great book for learning and a bargain Sep 17, 2006
The book is a bit outdated now but still good for learning Perl and HTTP/web client programming that can be adapted for other languages as well. And since it's old, you can get it for cheap online and at used bookstores.
And for those stingy folks out there, you can read it online instead at the O'Reilly Open Book project:
Before, during, and after the Civil War Mar 7, 2005
Living in the Shenandoah Valley, the book made a lot of sense to me and provided information as to J. Hotchkiss' early life and his life after the war. I grew up in Roanoke, Va. which was the headquarters for the Norfolk & Western RR, and reading about how Hotchkiss helped the RR to expand into SW Va. and into W. Va. was interesting. Also about his desire to get a physical map of Va. published and how he worked with William B. Rogers the State Geologists (namesake for the highest mountain in Va.). The bottom line is this book is a history book and it follows the title in its content.
Oh My good lord! What happened? Jun 29, 2003
I see little that could improve upon this book. Its examples are awful and assume a knowledge of Perl not expected of similar entry-level texts.
Avoid this book unless you have a great solid background in Perl. But then again, if that's the case you probably wouldn't need this book.
Too shallow. Oct 31, 2002
I personally found this book much less informative than I was hoping.
Most of the book is dedicated to explaining the ins and outs of HTTP. There is not enough sample code, and the code that is given is pretty basic.
As far as information about programming web clients with perl, I have found that it is more helpful to just do web seraches, and read the examples available on various web sites.
The book does do a good job of explaining HTTP and the how web clients operate. I just wish there had been more information about Perl clients specifically.
I wouldn't pay [as much] for this book. Look for it used, it's not hard to find.
