'This book lives up to everything I have come to expect of the O'Reilly Nutshell series, being both technically accurate and highly readable. I would recommend it to anyone needing to extend or embed perl as well as to those wishing to move to more complex perl programming than they might be doing at the moment.' - Tom Hughes, Cvue, January 2000
This book covers complex techniques for managing production-ready Perl programs and explains methods for manipulating data and objects that may have looked like magic before. It gives you necessary background for dealing with networks, databases, and GUIs, and includes a discussion of internals to help you program more efficiently and embed Perl within C or C within Perl.See all Product Description

Well written and useful. I didn't use it much as I would have liked to because I needed a book that was probably intermediate rather than Advanced.Published on Sept. 25 2002 by Ralph Brandt
Reading this book will definitely increase your knowledge of Perl. Definitely not content-free. It may not have every topic everyone would hope to see, but it covers some useful... Read morePublished on Aug. 24 2002 by Jeff Anderson
Since receiving this book as a gift in June I have rarely consulted it, whereas I consult the O'Reilly Camel and Lhama books and the O'Reilly Perl Cookbook all the time. Read morePublished on Aug. 16 2001 by Jonathan
