5-0 out of 5 stars The Essential Perl Book
This book is _the_ book to get when you want to get serious about Perl.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not my style of learning
The book is well edited and has obviously evloved since its first edition to meet the needs of its readers, based on their feedback.
5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best reference for programmers new to Perl
I am not new to programming, but was new to Perl when I took a job that required a ton of pattern matching based scripting. I immediately convinced my boss to buy a bunch of Perl books, including this one. Usually, I am the type to use Google more than any book when learning a new language, but this book has been indispensible. I go to it first anytime I want to know how to do something in Perl, and 9 times out of 10 it is the only resource I need. I agree with other reviewers that this is not the book for beginning programmers, but I could have saved my boss a lot of money had I just had her buy me this one. It's all I've needed. ...

In this smooth, carefully paced course, a leading Perl trainerteaches you to program in the language that threatens to make C, sed, awk, and the Unix shell obsolete for many tasks.This book is the "official" guide for both formal (classroom) and informal learning.It is fullyaccessible to the novice programmer. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This should be your first book on Perl
I first tried to learn Perl by using the other O'Reilly book, "Programming Perl". I was completely lost. Then I found this book and my second attempt was much more successful. This book is great for self-teaching, and the book chapters should be read in order as each chapter builds on previous ones. Each chapter has plenty of good programming exercises with answers in the back of the book. I review this book in the context of the table of contents.
5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific Perl intro
This is my favorite Perl book, as this is where I started, and where I go back for refreshers.I have the Third Edition, and can only imagine that the Fourth Edition is just that much better.As for it being a Unix only book, I would dispute that, as I learned quite enough about Perl to create scripts for the Win32 port of Perl running on Win 2000.
5-0 out of 5 stars Second Edition ... you need to upgrade.
I had originally bought the Second Edition years ago and am finding that the two books now have very, very little in common -- it's like reading 2 different books.I'm not sure about the Third Edition, but if you have the First or Second, it would be a good time to upgrade. I really like how this edition is written ... very good read! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This One Gets Used
I have been using Perl for many years and consider myself an advanced user. I own well over a dozen Perl books (8 published by O'Reilly), and this is the one that continually gets cracked open (it has tape on the spine -- always a good sign). The book is a little more accessible than the Programming Perl book, and it covers tons of various solutions. It's a valuable addition to the toolbox.

5-0 out of 5 stars look the stars..
The book, excelent.. but I had problems with the delivery. Fortunally I bougth it to Amazon and they sended to me another book. When I have used UPS or FEDEX I have not had any problem, but with the normal mail, please I don't want it anymore..

5-0 out of 5 stars This book has changed my life
This is a must-read for any Perl programmer.You are only as good as the teachers you have, and if your teachers use stuff like $|++, you are screwed.In this case, Conway would tell you to Use English;, and then you'd know what a $| is.A sampling of other tips:

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Coding Methods to Improve Your Perl
I have to admit that I can bristle at books that try to preach, so Perl Best Practices was on a hiding to nothing when I came to review it. I also have to admit to being torn about the author -- after all, he is one of those poor fools who insist on living in cold, unenlightened Melbourne, while I live in vastly superior Sydney. On the other hand, how can I dislike a man who manages to place a quote that involves my favourite character, Lady Bracknell. from my favourite comic play, 'The Importance of Being Earnest,' in the first few pages of his book?

Editorial Review

Regular expressions are a central element of UNIX utilities like egrep and programming languages such as Perl. But whether you're a UNIX user or not, you can benefit from a better understanding of regular expressions since they work with applications ranging from validating data-entry fields to manipulating information in multimegabyte text files.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Title on the Subject
If you have ever been frustrated trying to figure out Regular Expressions (RegEx) based only on a table showing symbols and a few paragraphs of explanations obviously written by someone who assumes you are already familiar with the concept, then this book is for you.Don't be daunted by 480+ page size of this title; before you reach the end of chapter 2 you find yourself with a solid understanding of the concepts, structure, syntax and "keywords" in common use by those utilities, programming languages and applications that incorporate RegExs.The middle of the book covers implementation of RegEx in different environments, techniques for creating the expressions, and methods for creating efficient expressions.The end chapters are specific for Perl, Java, VB.NET and PHP users.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough Regex book
This book is an invaluable resource. I learned more than I wanted to know about regex after reading this book. The authors breaks things down to the smallest detail and discusses each aspect. He covers regular expressions, their engines, their use, and some tips and tricks without losing the reader.
5-0 out of 5 stars Mastering Regular Expressions
I've corresponded personally with Jeffrey Friedl several times over the last few years, and I remember being at once impressed with his attention to detail and his focus. I was invited to be one of the technical review editors for this third edition of his authoritative book on Regular Expressions, but had to pass due to time constraints.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent catch all
I have written a number of modules for Perl over the last 5 years, and I really wish I had bought this book earlier.
5-0 out of 5 stars The first useful documentation on Perl OOP
This is my favorite Perl book, alongside Advanced Perl Programming.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-read Advanced Perl Book, the title is misleading
I almost passed this book by, thinking it was a primer into the OO world with Perl. I'm comfortable(if slightly annoyed) writing OO Perl code. What surprised about Conways text was that the book used OO as a premise to instruct the reader on more advanced aspects of Perl; its more an Advanced Perl book than the expected Object Oriented book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good step up for Perl programmers
For Perl programmers looking to make more of the language than just scripting this is the ideal 'step up' book. Object Oriented features of Perl are covered well. Writing and publishing CPAN modules is also covered, as are unit testing concepts.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As Learning Perl
'Learning Perl' by the same authors is one of my favorite books of all time in in the O'Reilly family of books.It's incredibly well written, easy to follow, and it's like having the best instructor you could want teaching you live and in person.As for 'Intermediate Perl', this book is supposed to take regular Perl developers beyond the scripting abilities of the language, allowing them control of much of the power of any other popular and powerful programming language in the development world.While this book has lots of nice material, I find the book to not be as clear, concise, and easy to follow as the precursor to this book.I am certainly no Perl expert, so maybe that is part of the problem, but upon opening this book I had hoped to find a book that was easier to read for any and all programmers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Perl book ever
Steven Holzner has written many, many tech teach/reference books, but his Perl Blackbook is by far the best. The book features several characters, but focuses mainly on the Novice programmer and the Master programmer. The Novice works through the book, much as you would, learning about Perl along the way.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Perl references ever
This book can be used to learn Perl, the format goes through beginning topics very nicely, and then gets you working on tougher topics very quickly. However, I have found that this book is much more valuable as a reference. If there's ever a time you say to yourself, "Hmm, how can I do that in Perl?" or "What can I do with that function?" then this book can help. It covers a HUGE amount of topics, from the basics of Perl, to cgi, to network programming, to Tcl/Tk, to.... well, just about everything. If you need to learn something, then there's a good bet this book will teach you everything you need to know about it. Invaluable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everythign I had looked for
When I discovered Perl, I was a C++ programmer. I wanted to more easily manipulate textual data, and let's face it, cgi programs are just not the happenin deal when it comes to web apps. Enter Perl. At the time I bought this book, I had seen a ton of Perl scripts doing what I wanted to do, but Perl as a language seemed so foreign to me. The Black Book bridged the gap wonderfully, and it is so well written that I managed to read most of it on a car voyage from Louisiana to California (I can't even read some of my favorite novels while traveling).

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but already dated
Request Tracker (RT) is a great product. I am the only sysadmin at a small company, and having an automated tracking system is going to be an immense benefit for me. I bought "RT Essentials" to help me get up to speed on RT3 really quickly. And, since it was written by the programmer who's responsible for RT, the book had lots of detail and tips.
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Software, but Average Book
We've been using RT for several years.As one happy customer mentions at Best Practical's site, managing a project or service driven organization without RT is like watching TV without a TiVo.The software is powerful, flexible, and above all, adaptable to many styles of management for more than just technology projects.No question, the software gets 5 stars.

Are you an end-user, system administrator or developer who interacts with RT on an occasional or regular basis? Authors Jesse Vincent, Robert Spier, Dave Rolsky, Darren Chamberlain and Richard Foley, have written an outstanding book that is for everybody who has to use RT to manage tasks.

The birth of new modules for the Perl scripting language is a regular occurrence, and the publication of an O'Reilly book about one of these modules is a sign of coming of age.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good book, but so is the CPAN documentation
This is a (the definitive) book on Perl DBI.I swapped book-for-book with a former co-worker for this.I keep it in the office for the newbies.
4-0 out of 5 stars An alright book for the DBI beginner
The database-oriented view of programming has become increasingly popular, and it is of great importance for all serious programmers to understand how to use their favorite language to manipulate the database systems.With the variety of database systems out there, it can be a real challenge to learn what there is to know.For the Perl programmer, however, there is this book on the matter, and it will probably be all you'll need to get started working with database programming in no time.Other reviewers have stated that this is a regurgitation of the docs.This is partially true.But the docs are very bland, and this book presents the information in a much more informative, and easy to read manner.With it, you can begin programming the DBI within a week (a day if you already know SQL and skip the chapter on the Berkley DB system).Recommended for anyone interested in learning how to use Databases with Perl.If you already know the DBI, the book wont be of much help, maybe as a reference, but I'd only pick it up if you don't know it, or are still inexperienced at it.

4-0 out of 5 stars still a valuable reference for multiple databases
This book has been a valuable reference of mine for several years for web database programming projects. I bought the book soon after it was released and continue to use it - sometimes on a daily basis depending upon the project I am currently developing. I realized from the beginning that much of the material in this book came from the online documentation and have still found the book to be useful enough to stay on my A-list of reference materials. Applications like CGIScripter need to utilize up to half a dozen different databases so I have found the reference section on each database be the section I often turn to first. I have not found this info available anywhere in the online documentation. When you program and debug on multiple computers with multiple windows open simultaneously, having a reference book is often more manageable than opening another window on the computer. And for those times when I am struggling with an especially troublesome programming issue, I have found it very helpful to sit in my easy chair with a reference book like the Perl DBI book in order to research the problem. The only reason I am not giving the book 5 stars is that it hasn't been updated in a few years so it doesn't include info on some of the new DBI supported databases like SQLite. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One fo the better books I have run across on Perl.
Good straight forward examples...most show the input, the code and the output produced by the code.You need only understand the logic of programming... the book fills in the rest you need to know.I have six or seven books on Perl but always reach for this or The Little Black Book for syntax and examples.Invest in a good editor designed for Perl programming like OptiPerl [with syntax checking and debugger] and you will be well on your way!

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. ...

Perl Pocket Reference only gives lists and tables.No explanation of how to use the various functions, variables, etc.Definitely not for new-comers.
4-0 out of 5 stars quick hints/ reminder of perl cmd
good and give me a quick review/reminder of perl commands

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy a clue, Gerald
Gerald W. Irmler writes in his review "I also have two very large Perl books that are also almost useless, so maybe it's a Perl problem."Well yes, Perl is not an easy language, but I suspect that the main problem here is an Irmler problem.This book does a very good job of doing what it intends to.Another clue that Irmler is lacking a clue is the baffling comment that "The author seemed more interested in being clever and funny, then (sic) imparting information."Huh?The book is comprised entirely of very succinct facts about the language.There is no style here to speak of, due to the nature of the book.

Editorial Review

A great book for beginning programmers who want to learn Perl. Filled with concrete examples and, yes, by using this book you will be able to write good Perl code on your own in 21 days. But no perlson is an island, and there is no single book that covers Perl completely, so we recommend that you also get Programming Perl, which is better at providing the language specifications, and, in fact, was written by the author of Perl. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book - clear and easy to read
I find myself using this book as a refernce almost every day.It is well written and easy to follow.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I haven't even finished the book and I am already feeling like a perl programmer
I bought this book after trying to learn Perl through another book (Perl for Bioinformatics). This book is definitely a better introduction to Perl than any other book I've seen. It is clear and concise enough and although it might be hard to finish it in 21 days, you can start coding your own scripts much before the end of the book. I am still on chapter 11 and I can program most of what I need with it (i.e parsers and simple bioinformatics applications). I recognize that there are a few typos on the book but if even Knuth's Art of Computer Programming have them why shouldn't Lemay's Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days do the same?
4-0 out of 5 stars Above Average Introduction
Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days by Laura Lemay is sufficient for the beginner wanting to learn Perl, be it on Windows or a UNIX-based operating system. If Perl is your first programming language, then this book is a fairly good book to choose as a starting point. It teaches the basics of programming in Perl and moves quickly from that point onward.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Practical Advice for Perl Programmers
If your a serious Perl programmer or a long-time Perl scripter whose looking to broaden your horizons then this is an excellent book. Surprisingly, this is really a Perl book for professional Perl developers, sys-admins, and scripters. This book avoids parlor-tricks like "Controlling your coffee maker with Perl" and focuses on how best to make writing and testing Perl code quick, easy, and sometimes even fun.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perl manual or detective stories?It's both!
Perl hacks is an intriguing book which explores specific problems and their quite practical solutions.This book is easy to dive in and out of.It reads more like a collection of bite sized detective stories rather than a novel.
5-0 out of 5 stars A toolbox and tutorial for the working Perl programmer
This book is for experienced working Perl programmers - most likely system administrators but not necessarily - that need working solutions to real problems you'll most likely find in the workplace. There are a few diversions into such "cute" ideas as building animations in Perl, but most of these hacks are for the working programmer who is looking for ways to automate processes, build interfaces that don't get in the way of developers, and thoroughly test and simulate code. Amazon does not show the table of contents so I review this book in the context of the table of contents.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Defacto Perl Reference
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.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Perl Book
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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool
You can't go wrong with this book, even if you're a Perl beginner. Intermediate users will find the book excellent. Perl is a superb language.

5-0 out of 5 stars Both theory and practice plus free modeling software
The coverage of the theory in the first part of the book is very well done. However,its the practical examples in the second half where the book really shines. There are a number of examples modeling client server and web applications. 5-0 out of 5 stars A great tool for the capacity planner or performance analyst
This book lays out basics of queuing theory in a way that is both understandable and easy to apply.I have fumbled for years using complex performance analysis tools without ever really knowing whether or not I'm getting the right answer.Now I know what looks right and what doesn't. Gunther has an easy to follow style as he introduces the concepts of queuing theory. Then he shows you how to apply what you have learned using real life examples.It's a definite "must have" for the capacity planner or system performance analyst.

5-0 out of 5 stars concise and lucid exposition on performance analysis
dr. gunther has written a gem of a performance analysis book. for starter, the unix load average is a wonderful detective story. i especially liked chapter 5 with real performance analysis experiences applying queueing theory discussed in both chapter 2 and 3. the best part is dr. gunther's exposition of queueing theory into the essence for the working performance analysts. in addition, appendix B on buffers and appendix C on memoryless property are the most lucid explanation i have read. i would also heartily recommend dr. gunther's other book, the practical performance analyst. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars relevant, practical and well-balanced
Programming Web Services with Perl is principally a book on implementing solutions using XML-RPC and SOAP in Perl. It also covers complementary and alternative standards such as WSDL, UDDI, and REST in some detail. And on the periphery, it finishes with a whirlwind tour of developing message routing, alternative data encoding within XML, security, transactions, workflow, internationalization, service discovery, extension, and management techniques and specifications.5-0 out of 5 stars A "complete reference" is oh so hard to find...
And yet this book covers every aspect of web service development utilizing perl.As a long time user of the original Frontier::RPC2 module, things have come a long way, and with that greater complexity, the concepts have grown in scope considerably.This IS the book that you want to read if you REALLY want to understand SOAP and XML-RPC.From the XML DTD's to implementation code (either standalone applications or utilizing mod_perl) this book covers everything in between.In all it is a welcome addition to the O'Reilly family of Perl books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to XML-RPC
As with all O'Reilly books there's a great intro to the technologies. They take you through how it works, not just how to deploy some code. When you get to the XML-RPC modules, they don't force a solution on you, but give a great tour of what's available and let you pick. For me, the highlight was the intro to Randy J. Ray's RPC::XML modules (he's also one of the authors). I've been fighting with getting the 'system.*' handlers hacked in with other aproaches and it was great to see someone had already figured out such a clean approach. (Which is something since Perl can get reeeaaal ugly!) This book has saved me many days of wasted development. ... Read more
