Item Description: Yay, printed POD.
I bought this book because I thought it would be an excellent adition to Conway's book. In fact, this is what Amazon had to say:
This is the ultimate collection of ready-to-use code and expert techniques. Instant Perl Modules shows you, step-by-step, how to create your own Perl modules to extend the capabilities of this already flexible scripting language. Plus, you'll get more than 100 ready-to-run Perl modules on the bonus CD-ROM.
I felt rather gypped.
So the actual "chapter" on creating modules is all of 1.5 pages long and doesnt teach you anything.
I guess it is hard to find a good book on OO Perl... but keep looking. This isnt one of them.
