Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perl in a Nutshell is a comprehensive reference guide to the Perl programming language. This book covers all the core features of the language. It ranges widely through the Perl programmer's universe, gathering together in convenient form a wealth of information about Perl itself and its application to CGI scripts, network programming, database interaction, and graphical user interfaces. It also gives detailed coverage about using Perl within a Win32 environment.

This book assembles more information about the language in one place than any other reference work. Here are just some of the topics covered in the book:

  • Basic language reference
  • Introduction to using Perl modules
  • Perl and CGI: CGI basics, CGI.pm, mod_perl
  • DBI, the database-independent API for Perl
  • Sockets programming in Perl
  • LWP, the library for World Wide Web programming in Perl
  • The Net::* modules

As part of the successful "in a Nutshell" series of books from O'Reilly & Associates, Perl in a Nutshell is for readers who want a single reference for all their needs.

Synopsis:

The perfect companion for working programmers, "Perl in a Nutshell" contains everything you need to know for all but the most abstruse Perl questions. It covers all the core features of the language, from command-line options and built-in functions, to general syntax, special variables, and regular expressions. Cover Title

About the Author

Ellen Siever is a writer and editor specializing in Linux and other open source topics. In addition to Linux in a Nutshell, she co-authored Perl in a Nutshell. She is a long-time Linux and Unix user, and was a programmer for many years until she decided that writing about computers was more fun.

Stephen Spainhour co-authored Webmaster in a Nutshell, Perl in a Nutshell, 1st Edition, and contributed to many other OReilly titles. He is an avid fan of professional tennis, and when hes not checking for tennis scores on the Web, he enjoys cooking, electronic music, troubleshooting his home-built PC, and watching too much television.
