HASH(0x97b193b4) out of 5 stars Excellent tutorial for CGI/Perl Feb. 4 1999
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is excellent, but I noticed that one of the examples didn't work on my system(Win 98, Sambar Server, Perl 5). In chapter 2 and 3 it mentions and examines code that uses subroutines, but on my system it returned a false value from the subroutine and an error. To correct this put 1; directly below the entire subroutine 'sub name {subroutine code} 1;' Thanks to Amazon's Perl for Dummies for pointing out that workaround. I would recommend both books as complements of each other. Perl for Dummies describes in more detail with less example, and Perl CGI Programming has detailed examples with little explaination.
HASH(0x977ee99c) out of 5 stars Excellent - Highly Recommended Oct. 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a great introduction to both Perl and CGI programming. This book is genuinely trying to teach you, unlike some books where the author is attempting to show you how clever he/she is. Also includes useful examples, and the syntax reference library in the appendix is essential once you are experienced with Perl & CGI. I am very pleased I purchased this book and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be up and running with Perl CGI programming in the shortest possible period.
HASH(0x97426840) out of 5 stars Modem with TCP/IP access required!! March 18 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I followed the book, reading and following the examples. I downloaded Perl and a Sambar-server via my university-account. When installing the server on my PC (which should be an easy task according to the writer) I was thrilled...Unfortunately the server demands that you have a TCP/IP connection available - which I don't. I feel like I just waisted a lot of money. However the book has some interesting subjects, and I'm looking foreward to continuing my reading (when I eventually get a TCP/IP connection)...
HASH(0x97b69a38) out of 5 stars Not that good... Alot of experience required!! Jan. 31 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well, the book says "No experience required", that must mean that you should have no experience !?!? When I read it, I found out there was only help if I used WindowsNT and had Microsoft ISS installed. I don't.... Not many has.... And there are errors in some of the syntax's in the book... Not very clever when it's for beginners... I stopped using this book after page 60... It just didn't work!
HASH(0x9857b7d4) out of 5 stars Just 2 words to say... Excellent Book!! Jan. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to learn perl, this book it's the best.. But if you want to train yourself programming CGI, this book it's the best too. Excellent documentation, with a lot of examples and screen shots. This book follows you to be an excellent programmer, also it contains instructions to how to install a web server on your machine. Great book. I recommend you this book.
