Pro Perl is one of the most important and powerful languages available today, and Pro Perl offers an in-depth guide to exploiting some of its best features. This title is suitable for any experienced developer who wants to reap more from this language. The book never loses sight of practical details. The book pays particularly close attention to running Pro Perl in multiple environments. And early chapters explore installing and running Pro Perl on Unix, Windows, and Mac. Author Wainwright includes advice for running and deploying scripts, including Perl internals, autoloading modules, and installable modules for distribution. Instead of full-length scripts, Wainwright presents many short code excerpts.
