  • mod_perl stuff (Score:2, Informative)

    depending on where you hang out, you may either be tired of hearing about it or entirely unaware, but there's another book on the mod_perl front that might be able to help you get on your way: []. people have been telling us it complements the Eagle book nicely, which was the idea.
    • I've had the Eagle for awhile now but only recently started doing some serious mod_perl work.

      It took me some time to get into the groove on its layout but I'm starting to like it.

      As for the mod_perl cook book (recently purchased) I've only read a few chapters and skimmed the rest. So far I would say that it lives up to the billing of being a complement to the Eagle.

        I too found the Eagle book unaccessable until I *had* to do mod_perl stuff and THEN the book made a whole lot more sense. The problem, I think, is that mod_perl is really just perl hooks into Apache. This means that mod_perl is just another way of programming Apache, so you need to understand Apache before using mod_perl to its fullest. That's the part that I got hung up on anyway.
        • That's the reason I ordered an Apache book at the same time, as I pretty much knew that going in. The thought of learning Apache doesn't thrill me; it's usually something that I'd rather leave to sys-admins (and often *must* be left to the sys-admins).

          At the end of the day, though, it's a good skill to have, especially in lieu of the fact that so many prospective employers want to see mod_perl experience on a resume'.
