Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book picks up right where Learning Perl leaves off. With Intermediate Perl, youll graduate from short scripts to much larger programs, using features that make Perl a general-purpose language. This gentle but thorough guide introduces you to modules, complex data structures, and object-oriented programming.

Each chapter is small enough to be read in just an hour or two, ending with exercises to help you practice what youve learned. If youre familiar with the material in Learning Perl and have the ambition to go further, Intermediate Perl will teach you most of the core Perl language concepts you need for writing robust programs on any platform.

Topics include:

  • Packages and namespaces
  • References and scoping, including regular expression references
  • Manipulating complex data structures
  • Object-oriented programming
  • Writing and using modules
  • Testing Perl code
  • Contributing to CPAN

Just like Learning Perl, material in this book closely follows the popular introductory Perl course the authors have taught since 1991. This second edition covers recent changes to the language up to version 5.14.

Synopsis:

Get a clear roadmap for improving your skills with Intermediate Perl, and gain working knowledge of Perl's objects, references, and modules—ingredients that make the language so versatile and effective. Written by the authors of the bestselling Llama book, Learning Perl, and updated for Perl 5.14, this book offers a gentle but thorough introduction to intermediate programming in Perl.

Each chapter is small enough to be read in just an hour or two, ending with a series of exercises to help you practice what you've learned. If youre familiar with the material in Learning Perl and have the ambition learn more, this book will take you much further into Perl's capabilities.

Topics include:

  • Packages and namespaces
  • References and scoping, including regular expression references
  • Manipulating complex data structures
  • Object-oriented programming
  • Writing and using modules
  • Testing Perl code
