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.
Excellent - Highly Recommended Oct. 24 1999

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.
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)...
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!
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.
