Very good

by Kristin S on Sep 8, 2011

This is a good book that was shipped on time. The authors even made reading it interesting with their comments and jokes in the footnotes.

The best perl book

by sandylaks on Apr 14, 2011

This book is probably one of the best of it's kind. A quick, less verbose but yet very effective in teaching Perl. Absolutely loved it.

sandyyy

Excellent Perl book

by sandyyy on Apr 14, 2011

This is an excellent Perl book for anyone.I highly recommend it.

sandeep

A Good First book

by sandeep on Apr 8, 2011

This book really helped me prepare for interviews and also kindle my interest in Perl. The thing is this book alone will not be sufficient and you will have to get other Perl books like Programming Perl. You should also be familiar with Unix to understand the concepts. Overall a great book!!!

Gabi

Good book, too many footnotes

by Gabi on Jul 8, 2010

This is a review of the 4th edition (Schwartz, Phoenix, foy). Like all of the O'Reilly books I've seen so far, Learning Perl is very nicely edited and well laid out. The authors made one unfortunate choice. They decided that, since Perl is a complex language with a lot of quirks, they were going to interrupt the general flow with an abundance of footnotes. They do warn you to ignore them, but that's easier said than done -- besides, if they're there to be ignored, why not just leave them out? Other than that, this is a good introduction to Perl. I am using it for a distance ed class at NC State. I am more than half way through the term and I've done well so far without listening to a single lecture, just by reading the book and doing the end-of-chapter exercises.

Discussions about Learning Perl

sandeep

Is this the best book on Perl for beginners?

I started using this book to quickly prepare for my interviews and I really liked it. It also kindled my dying interest in programming. What do you guys think?
