Using practical, real-world examples

Using practical, real-world examples, XML And Perl is the collaborative effort of Mark Riehl and Ilya Sterin to demonstrates how to perform a variety of XML tasks, ranging from such basic tasks as XML parsing, to more advanced tasks such as writing XML event handlers, RDBMS integration, and XML transformation. XML And Perl is a continuingly useful addition to personal and professional XML and Perl reference collections.

Complete with great examples.

The authors of this book, definitely know the subject. I believe one of them is an author of quite a few XML modules, though both are widely known in the Perl XML community.This book definitely covers the state of Perl and XML. It goes over the most important modules, in great detail and providing concrete examples. I especially like the first two chapters, which in detail get you prepared for the rest of the book. The coverage of XML parsing theory was a great topic to cover. Two large chapters, each dedicated to SAX and DOM respectively, covered both parsing technologies in great detail.Many, many, more great chapters. Apart from some typos, which are inevitable in any book, this book stands way above the O'Reilly counterpart, which I also own.

WOW! Fantastic!

I am just beggining to program with Xml and Perl, and I found this book helpful, very helpful. This book was very clear, I had no problems reading it. I learned to do things with this book that no other perl or xml book taught me. Very Informative, but at the same time not too long to read.

Terrific resource for the intermediate Perl programmer

The introduction tells you exactly what you're going to get and then you get it. The chapters follow a logical and intuitive structure with plenty of helpful graphics and code samples. I would have liked to have seen more about the differences between XSLT and CSS and why I should use one over the other. A great job is done explaining the differences between DTDs and XML Schemas, advantages and disadvantages of each, who should use which approach and why. The section on using XML with RDBMS was especially helpful. Overall, this is an excellent book. I'd recommend it to any intermediate Perl hacker or XML type. For beginners, I'd recommend "Learning Perl" (O'Reilly) and "XML for Dummies" (IDG), then this book.

The monster in my closet

XML has been the monster in my closet for years now. Perl has been my teddy bear. I had the pleasure of opening the closet door with my teddy bear held tightly in my arms to protect me. This book is an excellent way to bring the power of the two strongest tools in use today together. Having the XML quick reference in the back helps to guide a new XML user through the concepts. This book is a must read for perl programmers looking to expand their skills into XML.
