Modern Perl: The (Draft) Book

[ #40423 ]

This took longer than I expected, but the draft of the Modern Perl book is available for review. I'm especially interested in hearing from people who don't consider themselves expert Perl 5 programmers. The goal of the book is to explain how Perl 5 works (and how to write Perl 5 effectively) to help novices become adepts.

  • Amazing job!!

    I'm looking forward to directing people to this book!

  • Hi

    In The Perl Philosophy, you have:

    my @all_results = some_expensive_operation();

    I thing you need an explicit statement (or a comment at the end of that line), saying that in Perl, '@' means all_results is an array.

    It's only much later in the book that you explain this.
