in thread Recommendations for a self-taught Perl programmer

{snip} and second, the first edition of "Advanced Perl Programming" by Sriram Srinivasan (not the second edition, which is a completely different book).

What are the diffs between the 1st and 2nd editions? Why choose the 1st edition over the 2nd?

    The first edition is the book I read. It introduces generally interesting concepts like database mapping, code generation, the flywieght object pattern, etc. all in code examples. The second edition is a completely different book, which I haven't read.

[james28909]: omg
[james28909]: im just finding out that july and august have 31 days?
[atcroft]: stevieb: Apparently it was contagious....
[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
