Editorial Review

O'Reilly has done it again! This is my favorite book yet on writing CGI scripts with Perl (5.0). The extensive use of real world applications you can try while learning, and the great examples of how to have CGI interact with databases are especially useful. I suspect I shall order several copies for some of our staff who are new to CGI. Although the book has a UNIX bias, it has much to offer scripters on all platforms. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fluff
Not easy to understand. Sometimes it is difficult to follow what the author means. There is too much detail, which I feel was getting in the way of understanding CGI.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction to CGI
If you have a basic understanding of Perl and HTML, this book helps youlearn CGI.The book also introduced me to postscript and gd, which havebeen quite valuable for a lot of applicatioins.I enjoyedShishir'smodest, down-to-earth writing style.Since many people havecriticizedthis book, let me refute the most common criticisms:"Thesource code should be on a CD-ROM".No.Programming is in the fingers. You learn by typing.Anyway, you canFTP it if your lazy."The levelof detail is poor".That's what man pages and FAQ's are for.Shishiris giving more of a guided tour of CGI, with just enough detail to getstarted in each area."The source code has mistakes/is missingsemicolons."I didn't find this problem.But anyway, you should knowenough Perl to put the semicolons where they belong.If you don't knowPerl, this bookis not for you.Everything in this book is available on theweb, but the book will savethe beginner a ton of time digging around.Also,Shishir does not encourage use of CGI.pm, which is both good and bad.Ithink it's good because it teaches better understanding of the low-levelCGI mechanics.On the flipside, use of CGI.pm can protectyou from a lot ofobvious mistakes.I haven't found a better introduction to CGI. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars This book was not written by Perl programmers
A Perl novice picking this book up will be impressed. It's big, the prose is good, and it seems to have a command of the subject.
3-0 out of 5 stars Poor CD installation ...dies in the middle
I have only read the first chapter. Looks okay. However, I bought it with CD rom at original price (not from amazon) and I have such a hard time installing it. The Damn thing doesn't install on either of my win2k machines nor on Red hat 9 which I dual boot with one of my win2k.1-0 out of 5 stars I'm falling asleep
Because of my school, I own 4 of these hideous beasts. While the books contain a rich assortment of information on their particular subjects, they can be verbose in the extreme. Additionally, they seem to be poorly organized as some other reviewers have mentioned. It is very difficult to pick up these books and stay interested for more than 5 minutes. I've had to purchase other books to actually learn the languages and utilize the Deitel books as references. Some people may find these books to be fine; I suspect we all learn differently. If you enjoy books that get right to the point and with better organization, look elsewhere. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Concise Treatment Available
I have spent approx. $500 on Perl/CGI books and I will tell you that this is the best concise treatment available. There is no other book that provides as good an overview without leaving out critical issues, such file locking and security considerations. It remains my most frequently used reference. It is very well written and it does not go into unnecessary details.4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Starting Point!
If you are looking to learn Perl/CGI programming from the ground up, this is an excellent intro to the world of Internet programming with Perl.3-0 out of 5 stars Loses values after first 40 pages
The first 40 pages are useful to give you the sense of howCGI functionality is implemented in Perl. However by staying away from the most used standard Perl module for CGI programming (i.e. the CGI module) except for a few pages towards the end, the reader is ill served (because they have to buy a book to get the real work done). ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great overview of the Renderman specs
The book covers everything from the basics of setting up a scene with lighting to writing your own shaders with detailed descriptions of the Renderman API.Overall, excellent overview for the intermediate graphics prefessional.

4-0 out of 5 stars Intended for shader programmers
Don't buy this book expecting to learn the intricacies of Renderman. This is really geared towards shader programmers and Renderman theorists. Don't get me wrong, it's a good book, it just wasn't what I was looking for.5-0 out of 5 stars Delivers more than the title suggests
The world of computer graphics books is filled with fat, pricy tomes that are frankly little better than rehashes of the manual. "Advanced Renderman" is a completely different sort of book.Read more

The book has all the things i need to know for a beginner.I find this book easy to read, very helpful with lot's of illustrations/examples and the computer models are useful to practice the animation after reading it.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on animation I've ever read!
I've bought a lot of books on 3D animation over the years and most of them are either full of information that I don't need (how to build sky scrapers or how to spin my name in letters) or don't have anywhere near enough information on how to animate (usually only one chapter).

4-0 out of 5 stars Great in it's day
When the first edition came out, it was an atypical O'Reilly book; they were known for publishing guides for working programmers, but this was more of an introduction to a topic instead of a reference.
1-0 out of 5 stars Strike one for O'Reilly
I was sorely disappointed that I purchased this book. I own just about every O'Reilly book on Perl there is and I grabbed this one off the shelf based on my past experience with the quality that I had come to expect from them. What a fool I was!
4-0 out of 5 stars After the errata, then what . . .
I've got the July 2000 printing and was amazed at the errata and the errata items yet to be "confirmed"!As an example of the latter, just beyond half-way through the book there's an address book cgi script some 10 pages in length of which only the first page or so is explained.The script is an attempt to use the Perl DBI along with the DBD::CSV modules (utilizing SQL statements) to explain the database role in "Data Persistance"!The problem is that the "getQueryResults" subroutine in the script doesn't return any records when searching for particular field values (and returns every record in the database if no values are entered in the "search" form).In addition the "doUpdate" module reports that an update has been completed when in reality there has been no change to the database!If you're planning on using the book to learn some CGI with Perl, then you're going to be set back by this and other code malfunctions scattered throughout the book!Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Straight From The Creator of CGI.pm
This is one of my favorite computer books of all time. I enjoyed it as a way to learn to use the CGI perl module, several years ago, and I use it from time to time now as a reference. The author presented his material with a fair amount of humor, especially in the examples, and with great clarity. Of all the perl modules out there, I probably use CGI.pm more than any other, with DBI.pm coming in a close second. So, if you're planning on using perl to generate web pages, this book will be very useful. While learning to use the CGI.pm I also read two other books and this book by Lincoln Stein was the most useful and informative of the ones I read.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I gave up on this book after 185 pages. Admittedly, I learned a lot about using Lincoln Stein's CGI module using this book, but it was not always easy. On the upside most of his explanations are clear. However the examples are replete with errors and the typography used for the code listings make it easy to introduce new errors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, incredible high-level power in this module.
The author has done a wonderful job of explaining how to use the CGIpm module. If you understand the basics of perl, you should be able to go through the bulk of this book. And with just a slight acquaintance with Perl references and anonmous list, you'll be surprised how quick and easy this is to master. This book puts other CGI books to shame because other books shy away from discussing all the cool functions in CGI.pm. ... Read more

Excellent book. It is very well written and has a lot of very useful information. Although at times Mr. Albee gets a little heavy handed with his philosophies or life and art, in general his advice is most welcome.

If you've bought the book and using winnt/2000(VStudio), it may help to know that standard cin will timeout. Try this concept.5-0 out of 5 stars Until the better one come out, this is one of the best
I am one of C++ programmers who had been writting C++ codes for years. Recently, I have to write web programming (called CGI programs), and I don't want to learn a new language like Perl or Tcl... So, I wonderedaround everywhere finding any book that could give me any idea about how towrite CGI programs in C/C++, and luckily, I found this book.4-0 out of 5 stars Covers the fundamentals of CGI with C/C++ well...
...but, for one thing, for the price, this book should come with a CD with all the code...it's a huge pain to type all that is given.Also, the C++ classes (of most concern to me) seem to be overly complex, theres a whole load of member functions to replace the amersands in a query string withnewlines, and a bunch of other stuff, where a couple of strtok(); functionswould have done the job.Read more

Although there are a lot of books about CGI, few seem to be any good.In my opinion, this one fits neatly in the lower end of the spectrum.This book is basically is a simplistic introduction, provided that you already know Perl.Almost all of the examples are written in Perl.4-0 out of 5 stars I was new to CGI and found this book
I went out and bought this book becuase I saw it and glansed at it and I liked what I saw.This book will take you threw all the basics in CGI.By the end of the seven days, I was programming all these awsome things in perl.Right now, just from the knowledge I aquired from this book I was able to create my own internet advertising company using over 10,000 lines of pure Perl code.1-0 out of 5 stars Begginer content written for an expert

5-0 out of 5 stars A rare gem
This is a fantastic book!It is best for people who already know Perl and have written basic CGI scripts and now wish to write full-blown applications.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good introduction to CGI
I bought this book because the Amazon reviewers loved it so much. I got about 150 pages into it and now I need to buy a different book. This book is good for people who really really like to learn by rote. The authors cover interesting and important topics, but they don't explain them well. They don't even try to outline the purpose of a script before coding it. They also introduce functions that are new to the reader somewhere in the middle of a script. They never write, "This is function x. It can be used like this... Here is an example...."2-0 out of 5 stars Not all I expected
I read the raving previous reviews and thought this would be the CGI book for me.It wasn't.I know a bit of perl, but relatively little about cgi (I know a bit, but not much).Here are my comments:Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow
I bought this book mainly for Perl and CGI. I found it quite difficult to follow, and had to re-read chapters repeatedly to get the main points. Even then it was hard. I think I would prefer more "hand-holding". I always felt I was being overwhelmed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Book for Advanced Reference
This is a very dry reading. It holds a lot of information but not fit for the learning point of view, it is set up more to be a reference for the already advanced jscript/perl/cgi programmer. The layout is not created up well enough to display samples, and only makes you more confused as you get further into the book. I found myself reading pages over 2 or 3 times before one page would make sense with the next.

2-0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time
I just bought this book and read into it, and many of their examples are incorrect and they do not teach you very well. If you want a decent book on programming, try one from PeachPit Press. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Very poorly edited
The overall idea of Kevin Hanegan's book is a good one. An appreciation of CGI Scripting using Perl from the basics up to a couple of real world examples is exactly what anyone new to authoring CGI scripts would want from such a book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
Easy to follow examples.Great for a beginner to learn CGI.Learn the language by the end of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book!!!!!!!!!!!
Great book - I am a beginner and was able to learn with relative ease.I knew Mr. Hanegan in high school and it is no surprise to me that he was capable of writing such a fine manual. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Could have done a lot better!
Regret shelling out my hard-earned-buck for this book. Another example of the "hit or miss" affair with Amazon. Too bad it didn't have "adequate" reviews back then when I purchased it. Oh well!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for learning Perl
"Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web" is well organized, well written, and easy to understand. Elizabeth Castro clearly puts great care into communicating. She succeeds.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book is my bible
I have been programming since 1977.When I finally broke down and realized I was going to have to learn ANOTHER language I went out and reluctantly bought this book because it was the only one on the shelf.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Real Mess
This was the third book I bought to help me get started with CGI stuff.It was not very helpful, when I started learning. I was using it in an online class.Since that early learning experience, I forced myself tofigure out cgi instalation.I now have many scripts on my site. RecentlyI wanted a hidden counter, and I remembered there was one in this book.Iwent back to the book and tried to install it.And what a mess.There isno coordination between the CD and the book.The book has no set outline,forconfiguration. And there are errors that will make you think your anidiot.Do your self a favor and just start downloading scripts from theweb and learning the difference between a path on your server and a pathwith a URL in the browser. Maybe another book will help, but stay awayfrom this one, oh and I'll but this one up for auction, here at amazon, andgood luck!

1-0 out of 5 stars a waste of paper
I already reviewed this book and spent time on my review.You only have the author and publisher's reviews and maybe one from their mothers!Why do you not include negative reviews??You lose a great deal of credibilityby only including the author's bubbling over his work.These boys wrotethis worthless drivel in a rushed afternoon and it shows!Have the guts toprint less that gushing reviews!!

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book that delivers what it promises.
Drag and Drop CGI?Sounds too good to be true?Well, it IS true! An excellent book that delivers what its subtitle promises.If you're looking to enhance your website with form validation, form processing, searchengines, visitor counters and even an online store (amongst other goodies)then this is the book for you.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent beginners book!
I have been learning CGI/PERL/PHP for the past 6 months now. I am currently in an internship and my job is to update the webpage. This book was great! This book helped me a lot. I am definitely still a begginner at CGI and this book taught me a lot of basics. You won't learn how to create professional looking guestbooks or message boards but you will learn the basics of how to create them. This book covers just about everything you need to know to get started.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book, but lacks in one respect
This book is an excellent and well-balanced treatise on the topic of CGI programming with Perl. However, the book says that it teaches you to program CGI in C as well... not quite. I would not say 9 pages out of 490 is sufficient to state that the book covers CGI programming in C. But since far and away most of the CGI programs on the net are written in Perl, I don't believe it is an extremely important topic.5-0 out of 5 stars I am impressed
The content of the book impressed me.Prior to reading the book, I had taught myself Perl programming, and had learned the basics of forms processing.I didn't understand some of CGI jargon I came across in more than one Perl book that glossed over CGI in a single chapter somewhere toward the back of the book.But this book on CGI programming gave me all the information I needed to feel like a CGI pro, someone who could keep his cool in any discussion where "CGI" was spoken.
