Learning Perl on WIN32 Systems: Perl Programming in WIN32

In this smooth, carefully paced course, leading Perl trainers and a Windows NT practitioner teach you to program in the language that promises to emerge as the scripting language of choice on NT. With a foreword by Larry Wall, the creator of Perl, this book is the "official" guide for both formal (classroom) and informal learning.

O'Right - O'Reilly!

This is a great place to start learning Perl. As a first exposure to THE standard text-processing language of the web, this is as good as you will find.I think some of the reviewers who rated the book lower were probably discouraged with the learning curve of the language more than the quality of the material.Save money and buy the Perl CD Bookshelf (also O'Reilly), which includes Learning Perl on Win32.

Excellent Book

The O'Reilly books are definately THE books to get if you are interested in Perl. The two Learning Perl books (Unix and Win32) are easy to read and understand and great for a person first learning Perl. The Perl Cookbook is incredibly useful for someone trying to figure out how to do some of the more advanced things. I wish there were books like this for Java. This book, although it says win32, can be applied to Unix. At least about 95% of it is transferrable to Unix. Perl is an interpreted language, therefore it is Platform independent except when you make system specific calls to the OS.

Dont mess about - just buy it

Clear, concise and to the point examples back up a well thought through and sensibly paced book.I liked the way that win32 issues were clearly dealt with - no'more trying to work out why your UNIX based examples dont work. This book is excellent value for the $$ - you'll easily recoup in saved time the cover price.Tom

Worthy new version of a good book

Finally, a good book on Perl on Windows systems. Recently, I had to start writing Perl on NT after doing Perl for 8 years on UNIX. I was very frustrated due to the changes in Perl to make it work (the source of the problem is NT limitations) and the lack of good documentation on NT Perl. This books solves that need.

If you use Windows -- Get it!

Learned Perl from 21 days and camel books. Have completed several complex NT based projects. To me chapter 14 (process management), 16 (system information), and 17 (OLE Automation) were worth much more than the price of the book. Only, wish this tutorial was around when I was learning. Would have saved a bit of NT versus UNIX debugging.
