The title is probably misleading to most less experienced Perl programmers. I bought it because I buy every O'Reilly book that has to do with Perl. I wasn't entirely sure what I was getting, although I knew that the book was meant to talk about things like the FedEx Package Tracker.

Of course, I realize why it is called "Web Client Programming" now that I have written more than one LWP-based program.

It's a shame that they have allowed it to go out of print. On the other hand, it is in need of update because many of the modules discussed have been modified several times since then.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
