  • You mentioned you still had a cookbook on CD, right?

    Recipe 14.5 - Locking DBM Files.

    • Wonderful! :) Thank you very much. There's so much stuff on the _Bookshelf_ CD...I wonder what else I'm missing that I currently need.

      (I would never sell a book I didn't still have a copy of. It hurts to think I'm selling the only *paper* copy I have of the Cookbook, even though I know the CD is equivalent.)


      You are what you think.
      • Cookbook was the first Perl book I bought - learned my initial Perl from that and programs. That said, I'd be fine selling it now because I never use the paper version. Of the books on the CD, I only use the paper Nutshell (which is somewhat heavily annotated).

        (Mind you, for books I've not got on CD, I have somewhat heavy use sometimes.)

        What would be nice is an editor that can note what a scalar is blessed as and produce the appropriate documentation on its methods. Due to Perl's somewhat flexible OO nature I suspect such a program would be a headache to write. (As you don't know exactly what something is until the program is actually run.)
