Full Review

The 6 books contained in this set are the ultimate references and learning materials available for Perl. These books are: Learning Perl, Learning Perl on Win32, Perl Cookbook, Advanced Perl Programming, Programming Perl,and Perl In a Nutshell.

This CD set comes with a hardcopy of Perl In a Nutshell, and online versions of the six books listed above. This set is ready to put on a webserver for your own personal reference library available from anywhere in the world. If you don't have a webserver or wish to use just the CD, the search function for this set allows you to find terms used throughout the compendium by just starting a Java applet and searching with the custom search page.

It is, without a doubt, the most useful tool I have at my disposal as a Perl programmer. I can read these books at my leisure, or search quickly and easily. By logging into the restricted area of my webserver, I can use all 6 books from anywhere in the world, whether at work, at home, on business trip, or on vacation. If you are lucky enough to have a constant connection to the internet, this book set will save you from having to lug all 6 books with you, and will save you money over the individual price.

To all of you who hold value, usefulness, and just plain coolness, get this set, put it on a webserver (don't forget to restrict access), and use it, use it, use it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
