Effective Perl Programming is in Rough Cuts

Rough Cuts (although the book is done and in production). If you already have a Safari Books Online account you should be able to see it in full. If you don’t have an account, convince your employer to buy one for you and your coworkers. You can see some of the book without an account though.

Although you can leave comments for us directly in Rough Cuts, you can also just tell us directly.

Effective Perl Programming, the blog

Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition, front cover. Josh McAdams and I recently gave Addison Wesley our final manuscript for Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition, an update to Joseph Hall’s excellent first edition published in 1998. Not only have we updated the existing material up to Perl 5.10, but we’ve also quite a bit of new material for the evolution of Perl and its practices in the last 12 years.

We’re not stopping there, though. We had plenty more that we wanted to write and couldn’t fit in the book. Sometimes we had more to say on an item in the book and sometimes we wanted to include a topic that didn’t have the space for it. We will trickle out that extra material here. Additionally, we’d like to keep up a conversation with the readers of the latest edition to refine and expand the material that is already there.
