Perl Programmer's Interactive Workbook

Front Cover
Prentice Hall PTR, 1999 - Computers - 633 pages
If you're going to learn PERL, learn it right: with a focus on building rock-solid, readable code that can endure and evolve as your needs change. That's how this book teaches PERL: with a focus on quality, plenty of real-world sample code -- and no frills. PERL Interactive Workbook doesn't try to teach you everything: only the key skills you need to be effective. "Learn by doing," as you master PERL variables, branching, testing, loops, system control, files, output, functions, and much more. The code samples in this book have real purpose: there are no phony variables named "foo," and no fake programs named ""! The content and lab exercises are drawn from actual experience -- and they're supplemented by bonus code and exercises on Prentice Hall PTR's Companion Interactive Workbook Web site. From start to finish, this book will teach you how to build solid PERL programs, not just "quick and dirty" code that collapses at the slightest breeze!
