Item Description: "Cookbook" style collection of numerous web-automation techniques

Review Synopsis: Satisfied Overall -- Good Web Automation Reference

I am in the process of teaching myself Perl, and found this book to be a helpful reference to look to when something was not clear to me in Perl & LWP (another good web automation book). It contains a large number of useful code snippets that apply to many common web automation situations.

As a reference for the novice/intermediate Perl programmer - I would highly recommend it. As a complete tutorial in web automation, I would say that it is a bit lacking, and would recommend "Perl & LWP" and "HTTP: The Definitive Guide", both by O'Reilly, as a more comprehensive introduction to the subject.

[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, sorry I was outside for a moment moving my car out of hubby's way.
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is ONE song which throws a wrench in the works for both MP3::Info and MP3::Tag.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: fix it, or delete it ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I'm not sure how.
[shmem]: well, deleting is done with 'rm' :-P
