Perl CD Bookshelf: Six-Best-selling Perl Books Released on One CD-ROM

SEBASTOPOL, CA -- Arguably the best Perl books in print -- Programming Perl, Learning Perl, Perl in a Nutshell, Perl Cookbook, Learning Perl on Win32 Systems, and Advanced Perl Programming -- are now available on a single CD ROM in the immensely convenient Perl CD Bookshelf by O'Reilly & Associates.

Programming Perl, 2nd Edition, and Learning Perl, 2nd Edition have become so beloved of Perl programmers that they are commonly referred to by their animal covers-as the "Camel book" and the "Llama book", respectively. Critics called Perl Cookbook "amazing," "invaluable," "excellent," and "indispensable." And in a review on Slashdot, Andrew Gardner gave Perl in a Nutshell a 10 of 10 rating and called it "a perfect book."

Together these 6 books would retail for $199.70, but the Perl CD Bookshelf, which includes all 6 on a searchable CD-ROM as well as a hard copy of Perl in a Nutshell, sells for only $59.95. In addition to the savings, other advantages of the Perl CD Bookshelf include:

  • Easy look-up-you can search the indexes of all 6 books at once in your browser window.
  • Extensive cross-referencing. Links enable you to move quickly between books to get your information.
  • Portability. No need to haul 6 books with you to a client or off-site meeting-or home for another 6 hours or late night coding. A single CD holds all the Perl information you might need.
