Effective Perl Programming, Second Edition is the highly-anticipated update to ourbest-selling guide to the Perl idioms used by experienced programmers. It not only reveals the 'right' ways to solve common problems with Perl: it explains why these approaches are so successful. Three expert authors share solutions, techniques, pointers, rules of thumb, and pitfalls to avoid: everything experienced Perl programmers need to write more powerful, fluent, expressive, and succinct code. This extensively updated and revised edition retains the 'numbered items' format of the First Edition - a format proven in Scott Meyers' best-selling Effective C++ and many successful books since. However, it is nearly twice the size of its predecessor. The additions include:
Nine entirely new chapters on the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN), Databases, Debugging, Distributions, External Processes, Files and Filehandles, Production Perl, Testing, and Unicode.
Systematically updated examples that reflect today's best idioms.
More coverage of applications and user interface techniques.
New exercises and solutions that provide more hands-on practice, and add value in training environments.
