Synopsis

Most books make Perl unnecessarily hard to learn by attempting to teach the whole language, including its many redundancies, while ignoring the reader's knowledge of related languages and concepts. This book makes Perl easy to learn by teaching a strategically designed subset that's familiar to UNIX/Linux people, and by capitalizing on their existing knowledge rather than ignoring it. With this book, readers learn a carefully designed subset of the language called "Minimal Perl", which was developed through five years of experience in training software professionals at major corporations. It makes Perl more accessible to those having UNIX/Linux skill levels ranging from elementary to expert, by capitalizing on their existing knowledge of important utilities (grep, awk), or essential concepts (filters, command substitution, looping). Dozens of detailed programming examples are shown, drawn from contemporary application areas such as system administration, networking, web development, databases, finance, HTML, CGI, and text analysis.

Tim Maher has worked for U.C. Berkeley as a Senior Programmer/Analyst, for the University of Utah as a Professor of Computer Science, and for AT&T, DEC, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett Packard, and Consultix (his own company) as a course developer and/or lecturer on operating systems and programming languages. Tim founded Seattle's SPUG, one of the oldest, largest, and most active Perl Users Groups, and served as its leader for its first six years. He serves on the Advisory Board of the University of Washington that oversees its Perl Certificate Program, and has led discussions in the Perl community about the development of a certification process for Perl programmers. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
