in thread UNIX and Perl to the Rescue --like book for Python?

Piled higher (&) Deeper authorship is no guarantee of quality content. :-) Quite seriously, tho, if you can tell me the PhD author is a bioinformatics practitioner with a some serious CS and Perl background, I'd take citing the authorship more seriously. But merely citing degrees is NOT a recommendation, per se. Try "Learning Perl" -- at least for a start.

ww, you can't learn python from "Learning Perl" and "Learning Perl" doesn't touch upon biology

Have you even looked at the freely available primer that is the inspiration for this book? Its pretty good

    I quote from OP's less-than-clear problem statement: " So, since i also want to look at some Python introduction... (emphasis supplied).

    I think the cited sentence from the OP supports my reading -- that OP wants to learn some Perl, as well as his explicitly stated interest in Python and bioperl.

    Does your response mean you think that interpretation is off-base? Do you suggest that one should not answer the Perl part of the question without also answering the Python and biological-studies elements?

    actually this is quite funny, i realised, because when i was very young (not that im that old now). But before i got into computers i actually had a huge interest in biology to. I mean the main point for me in this Unix and Perl book is indeed Unix amd Perl. But this relation to biology, hmm interesting, coincidence? :D
