Could you provide some of us with a brief overview/definition of FBP? In fact, I wouldn't be offended by a link to your book-- you can link directly to the purchase page at by means of the ISBN number as such:


Where XXXXXXXXXX is of course the ISBN code, minus the dashes. If you do, use the preview facility to make sure that you have the ISBN the same way FB does by following the link (I've referred to books where a leading 0 was optional, and others where FB required it). Plus, if anyone buys your book via that link, PerlMonks gets a spiff off of it.

    hmm, taking a wild guess, might have something to do with it. The name fits :)

    Let's see know, that would make the fatbrain link something like New Impoved Data Factory, although it appears that Fatbrain doesn't stock it directly.

      You're right about the web site, and FB has the ISBN correct (ISBN:044217715), but the book is called "Flow-Based Programming" - although their title does sound familiar....

      I suspect nobody stocks it 'coz AFAIK all the remaining copies are in a couple of closets at home - but I would be delighted to send a copy to anyone who is interested - price negotiable. Amazon also lists it and uses me as a supplier, but it sounds like they're not too popular in certain quarters.
