 Book: Learning Perl   Author: by Randal L. Schwartz, Tom Christiansen 

Level: Beginner/reference
















The Llama Book
This dud (Myself) and a host of other geniuses call this the Llama book. Now on the stands in the cover which has blue color (instead of Pink) but five years back when I was skeptic about Unix and other alike operating systems, I had stumbled upon a job to write a simple form processing program that will have to be driven through CGI. Then came my dear old American friend and suggested me this book. The rest was history as I not only started to be a fan of PERL but also a hard core Internet programmer. 

The book is purely for those who are programming using HTML, JavaScript and only know C++ and not even Java. The book says "a leading Perl trainer teaches you to program in the language that threatens to make C, sed, awk, and the Unix shell obsolete for many tasks. This book is the "official" guide for both formal (classroom) and informal learning. It is fully accessible to the novice programmer"

And hey do not be alarmed if you do not know anything about Unix or for that matter C. You can still understand provided you know about programming. This is the place where you have to start for your Internet server side programming career.

The book helps a reader in grounding principles in simple and logical manner.This book actually starts at a low enough level to build the foundation which must be present before solid construction of a Perl program begins. 

What else can I say except "It took me one year to write two applications using PERL for CGI and just one year to write fifty more applications."

If you are stuck on your desk not knowing how to program using PERL then run to the stands and get this book.

Book: Perl and CGI for the WWW  Author: Elizabeth Castro

Level: Reference/Intermediate














Are you a person who knows how CGI works? and are you the one who knows the basics of PERL? Finding it boring to go back and study the basics of both the above subjects? and finding it hard to learn the advanced topics? Well then resort to CGI-Perl Book from the Visual Quick Start Press. 

Elizabeth Castro gave the world a stunning book called "HTML for the world wide web" and that book helped every novice to getting started on programming using HTML and thus change their careers. 

Here is an interesting point which describes how the book has been written. "the $ stands for the s in scalar; the @ sign stands for the a in array; and that the % that labels a hash or associative array indicates two circles on each side of the slash as parts of a pair".

Logical pictorial representations of the Visual Quick Start press has made programming very easy. This book is clearly geared towards the non-programmer or beginning programmer. PERL may not beat Java for its portability but for most of the things it can eliminate the use of Java. Most importantly the Servlets. Using PERL you can do anything and everything.

This book is definitely geared toward the beginner. The author says that the book is suitable for someone who has never even programmed before. It starts from the beginning, explaining how to type your program into a text editor, how to save it, how to run your program, etc., all in excruciating detail. As the book progresses, it takes on a "problem-solving, how-to" approach. Every page contains a problem (for example, "splitting a value into pieces" or "modifying all the members of an array") and an exact solution to that problem, also spelled out in excruciating, step-by-step detail.
