As reported by publisher description: Product Description: A great way to learn Perl! If you are looking for a fast and effective tool for learning Perl, Mastering Perl is the answer. It teaches the non-programmer how to program in Perl and also provides valuable insights for programmers who are experienced in other languages. An exciting feature of Mastering Perl is the "jumpstart" chapters which begin each section. These chapters walk the reader through a complex example which illustrates the key concepts of the section. Readers who learn by doing can skip from jumpstart chapter to chapter and gain instant results. Other readers will benefit from the jumpstart chapters by having seen Perl in action and will better understand why programs are written in certain ways. The book covers all of the key features of Perl for Unix and for Windows NT. It walks the reader through all of the core Perl topics such as data types, references, regular expressions, and more. Mastering Perl is a lifetime resource that begins by teaching you core Perl skills and then becomes a valuable reference as you seek to learn more advanced techniques.
