Book Description – Effective Perl Programming pdf

Effective Perl Programming has been relied on by experienced programmers for years to identify better approaches to address problems with Perl. Three prominent Perl programmers put together today’s greatest idioms, techniques, and examples in this long-awaited second edition: everything you need to build more powerful, fluent, expressive, and succinct code with Perl.

It’s about twice the size of the first edition, and it’s packed with everything from best practices for avoiding frequent errors to the most up-to-date information on Perl modules. You’ll not only learn how to use Perl correctly; you’ll also discover why these methods work so effectively. In this edition, there is new coverage on the following topics:

  • Material from the last twelve years of Perl evolution has been reorganized and expanded.
  • CPAN, databases, distributors, files and filehandles, production Perl, testing, Unicode, and warnings are all covered in eight new chapters.
  • Perl 5.12, the most recent version of Perl, has been updated.
  • Examples that have been systematically updated to match today’s best idioms

You’ll learn how to work with strings, numbers, lists, arrays, strictures, namespaces, regular expressions, subroutines, references, distributions, inline code, warnings, Data munging, Perl one-liners, and a whole lot more are all available. Every technique follows the same Items structure that made the first version so useful and popular. The book provides a point of view/approach to Perl that has shown to be extremely valuable in pondering how to tackle various types of challenges. While particular examples are provided, I believe it is more about the mental process of how to approach issue solving in the context of Perl.
