Perl 5 Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition Review

By Steven Pothier

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Perl 5 Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

I've programmed in Perl for about 7 years but only recently bought the book "Perl 5 Pocket Reference (3rd edition)". It is an amazing work! I tend to collect the pocket references as an important addition to my "toolbox". This book surpasses the promise that the other books mearly approach. It is conscise, well organized and simple. In fact, it is so well organized it has made some things clear that have been obscure to me for years. The attention to quality that Mr. Vromans put into this book means this is a book that never even makes it to the sweet spot on my bookshelf. It stays on my desk within arms reach.

Perl 5 Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition Review

By Paul T. McNally

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Perl 5 Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

I've said this before and it's actually a phrase stolen from a good and wise friend of mine: If Larry Wall is god, Johan Vromans is at least a titan, if not a demi-god with respect to Perl. I have found this particular pocket reference book to be indispensable. It becomes more valuable with each revised and updated edition.
