Since it is in German, everyone that is more comfortable
reading German than English, especially beginners and
intermediate users of perl.
compact introduction to Perl in terms of syntax, string
manipulation, list manipulation, regex etc.
complete with examples & excercises
introduction to OO complete with examples & excercises
a chapter on modules and their use, especially:
diverse HTML modules
again complete with examples & exercises
a chapter on Perl/TK
information on installing Perl
a CD with the book containing a Perl as source, a binary for
win32 (all slightly outdated by now in my edition) and all the examples from the book
3 stars out of 5
Fine to start out with. All examples and exercises are code that one might need in everyday computing. The auther even keeps an eye on security -w and use strict are not only explained but also used in the examples.
But there will come a time in the live of a Perl adept, when he needs more in depth information than this book can give. Programming Perl is a must have.
Another problem with the first edition (the one I have) is the index. Wrong page numbers in an index are not acceptable in a book that you might also use just to look up a function. This problem might have been fixed in a newer edition.
I still use it alongside my Programming Perl (2nd) and Perl Cookbook.
