in reply to Instant Perl Modules

So the actual "chapter" on creating modules is all of 1.5 pages long and doesnt teach you anything.

So is my Simple Module Tutorial :-) but it covers all the basics (sorry just vanilla modules, not OO ).

I agree this book is just a list of modules with a bit of explanatory text - some of which has been Uhmm Agh Mmm 'borrowed verbatim' from the pod. You can get the modules free on CPAN with the pod so unless you like hardcopy or want a few (dated) modules on CD....




Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    If it borrows verbatim, I hope that they checked the licenses of the modules that they borrowed from.

    Otherwise if someone wants to raise a stink, the book might be found in serious violation of copyright...
