Pro Perl Parsing (Pro)by Christopher M. Frenz
Synopses & Reviews
Perl, one of the world's most diffuse programming languages, was born out of the need to resolve the creator's dissatisfaction with what were at the time standard data parsing solutions. Indeed, since the 1.0 release in 1987, Perl has been heralded for its powerful parsing capabilities, features that are further enhanced through the thousands of Perl extensions made available through CPAN (the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network). Pro Perl Parsing begins with several chapters devoted to key parsing principles, discussing topics pertinent to regular expressions, parsing grammars, and parsing techniques. This material sets the stage for later chapters, in which numerous powerful CPAN parsing modules are introduced, accompanied by an ample number of example applications.
