Order Modern Perl

Item Description: Modern Perl by Chromatic

Review Synopsis: Nice book for all Perl programmers

Its list of contents looks very promising to me. No matter who you are, a novice in Perl or an expert; this book has something new, interesting and informative contents for you.

First three chapters deal with Perl Philosophy, its community and Basics of Perl Language. The contents are very informative and full summary on what you can achieve through Perl. You can start writing simple Perl code just after reading first three chapters too!

Next three chapters on Operators, Functions and Regular Expression will make you almost a Perl programmer within no time. If you donít want to use object oriented Perl, then You will find yourself a comfortable programmer in Perlís zone. But Perlís power canít be judged by stopping there. So next few chapters will show you the real implementation and object Oriented Perl

I have written a post on it: Please share your comment about this book :) Link:

    This is a very short review of the book. I notice you provide a copy to download from the aliencoders site. This has a different file size than the one offered on the official site, why not just link to their page rather than host your own (different) version? Are you simply trying to generate traffic at other site?

    Update: s/shot/short/ thanks kcott.

      I have given both links one link is from the original source and other link is from our own website.

      Both are the same but don't know why file size difference....

      What More I should write for reviews so that I would get positive points for it. Please guide me


        I'm confused as to why you'd offer download of the book from your site at all. As the authors site states:

        "Please download and share this book unmodified. (In legalese, these electronic versions are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License."

        Does your download match this criteria since it's different from the download offered by the author? With regards your actual review posted here, it's seems little more than a summary of what the books contents section describes. Since you link to your own site (rather than the authors) offer what we've established is a questionable version of the book, it seems to be your simply trying to generate traffic to Alien Coders.
