  • Good Day from the Twin Cities!

    I've often found Bruce Eckel's "Thinking In Java: The Definitive Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming in the Language of the World-Wide Web" stuff to be closest in understanding to OO Perl. I think that is because he started doing his "Thinking . . ." series with C++! The Third Edition (December, 2002) is available in paperback but as I recall he's got previous editions available on his web site [bruceeckel.com]. I'm right in the middle of reviewing his "Java Issues & Directions [berkeley.edu]" (2 hours of streaming RealMedia)

    • The third edition is now available on his website, and has been installed on my Palm.

      I'll give it a look see, but the last thing I want now is yet another high level intro to OO. I've always groked OO, to the point where I find it hard to understand non OO code. And the beginning seemed to be more of the same.
