|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
|on Oct 04, 2001 at 14:27 UTC||Need Help??|
Item Description: Jack of all trades, master of only the typographical error... Takes 4 books and hacks the (seemingly) worst bits out of them
This book takes the (seemingly) worst bits out of a few good books and hashes them together in a way which is out of date, boring and riddled with errors.
Has no idea about making use of Perl's features and repeats itself while claiming to provide code for a guestbook (doesn't work), counter (doesn't work) and I didn't bother with the log decoder examples because I very much doubt if they work too!
Not a book for a beginner, intermediate or expert unless you need a reference section...
