An excellent intro to a tough topic

I was looking for a book which would get me started in Perl scripting as painlessly as possible. This book was all that and more. I am now thinking of taking up Perl scripting as a profession.

A great Intro to Perl!

I thought this book was excellent, it was a little short, but still good. My actual rating would be 4.5 stars, this is because once it gets into chapter 3 pretty deep, I lost my self and had to read it over a couple times, and instead of using, I'd rather know how to do it from scratch.Overall though a great book! c'ya

A Good Introduction... Not a Tutorial

If you are bright, and you want to understand the concept of Perl, this book will get you started. You probably will not come away able to write any programs, although you will gain some tools for doing so. I have not yet found a single book to get people started with Perl, but a combination of this book, "Learning Perl" and "The Perl CGI Cookbook" makes a good beginner library.

Just what it implies: INTRO to CGI/PERL

If your looking for a mammoth manual or encyclopedic guide to CGI and PERL, then you've come to the wrong place. This 150 page primer gets you off and running writing your own Perl scripts in the easiest way. Many examples and exercises aim your learning to integrating your knowledge into hypertext web pages. Receiving user input and producing valid output with CGI, HTML forms elements; all explained in an easy to follow, step by step text. Highly recommended to anyone who wishes to gain a basic understanding of the Perl scripting language

A fine introduction to CGI for those new to webmastering.

The book covers introductary features needed to begin interpreting PERL used for CGI scripts. Also, there are explanations of HTTP transactions and creating customized web pages based on browser input. The book ends with several appendices, the most important being a trouble shooting helper for script writers and the CGI-PERL library. A must for new to the job webmasters, especially those not familliar with the C family of languages. Recommended as a prelude before attempting to learn PERL on your own. It is a pity, though, that the authors did not review more applicable server scripts such as animated gifs etc. For all those who think that UNIX is a pain, PERL has got a few more twists.
