Reviews - What do customers think about Perl Core Language Little Black Book, Second Edition?
Non-Fiction May 5, 2008
A good reference to the PERL language.
As opposed to the O'Reilly publications, this book does not assume as much reading between the lines as what is written at times in those.
So, this may be useful for people to clarify what is being talked about in entries there, or just as a more clear starting point to begin with for the areas of PERL programming that it covers.
Great Reference Feb 16, 2007
This book is a great reference if you just want to quickly look up a syntax. The index is very good and makes it easy to find answers to problems quickly, and it almost always beats trolling through google search results! While it would not be useful as the only text for beginners, I think it would make a good supplemental text. It also might be a good choice for people who already have experience in other languages, and are switching to perl, or intermediate perl programmers who cannot remember where every comma and semicolon should go!
Book in good shape Jan 10, 2007
I am extremely impressed by this merchant. The shipping was on time and the book was in great condition
My Defacto Perl Reference Sep 14, 2006
As a new programmer and new Perl programmer this is an invaluable reference. For the ambitious newbie this book can serve as a great starter guide to the Perl language. As a reference and supplement to another beginner book, this book really soars.
I was able to quickly expand my understanding of Perl and started writing real perl programs (albeit very simple ones as a beginning perl programmer) by using this book. You'll become well versed in Perl using this as your constant guide.
When a programming reference can be distilled is such a highly useful and pragmatic way, you've got to add it to your library. Brilliant job on this one.
I highly recommend this work and I'm confident you won't leave home without it. Or perhaps you'll buy one for home and work. I also highly recommend 'Perl Power' by John Flynt and 'Beginning Perl, Second Edition' by James Lee (Apress) as companion beginner books to this one.
Great Perl Book Feb 15, 2006
This is a great reference book for perl. It doesn't try to teach the reader perl, which after you already know it is really nice. This is more like a collection of all the perlmod/man pages put together in an organized manner. I reference this book all the time for different syntax structures and many other reasons.
