Perl Pocket Reference

Perl Pocket Reference

The Perl Pocket Reference is an invaluable reference for Perl programmers. This handy, well-organized quick reference condenses stacks of Perl documentation down to the most essential at-your-fingertips facts.

The 4th Edition of the Perl Pocket Reference is updated for Perl 5.8. The book covers a summary of Perl syntax rules and a complete list of operators and built-in functions. This book is the perfect companion to the authoritative books on Perl published by O’Reilly & Associates: Programming Perl. Learning Perl, and the Perl Cookbook. This pocket reference will never make it to the bookshelf; dog-eared and well-worn, it will remain within arm’s reach of the keyboard or tucked in a back pocket, where it will be referred to on a daily basis.

Johan Vromans has engaged in software engineering research since 1975. Convinced of the importance of a good programming environment, he became an expert in using GNU Emacs and the Perl programming language. He was also instrumental in bringing the Internet to the Netherlands as a commercial activity. He currently owns his own consulting business called Squirrel Consultancy. He can be reached at .
