    Learning Perl

    If you ask Perl programmers today what book they relied on most when they were learning Perl, you'll find that an overwhelming majority will name Learning Perl— also known affectionately as "the Llama." The first edition of Learning Perl appeared in 1993 and has been a bestseller ever since. Written by two of the most prominent and active members of the Perl community, this book is the quintessential tutorial for the Perl programming language.

    Perl began as a tool for Unix system administrators, used for countless small tasks throughout the workday. It has since blossomed into a full-featured programming language on practically every computing platform, and is used for web programming, database manipulation, XML processing, and (of course) system administration—all this while still remaining the perfect tool for the small daily tasks it was designed for. Perl is quick, fun, and eminently useful. Many people start using Perl because they need it, but they continue to use Perl because they love it.

    The third edition of Learning Perl has not only been updated for Perl 5.6, but has also been rewritten from the ground up to reflect the needs of the programmers who are learning Perl today. Drawing on their years of success at teaching Perl as consultants, the authors have re-engineered the book to better match the pace and scope appropriate for readers who are trying to get started with Perl, while retaining the detailed discussion, thorough examples, and eclectic wit for which the book is famous.

    This edition of the Llama includes an expanded and more gently paced introduction to regular expressions, as well as new exercises and solutions designed so readers can practice what they've learned while it's still fresh in their minds.

    Perl is a language for getting your job done. Other-books may teach you to program in Perl, but Learning Perl will turn you into a Perl programmer.

    "[Learning Perl] achieves admirably what it sets out to do—teach Perl basics and no more.... [It] builds knowledge rather than drowning the reader with information as many other books seem to do. This is the first in a series of books on Perl from O'Reilly Publishing, the others being Programming Perl, Advanced Perl Programming, and the Perl Cookbook, and it truly is a great introduction to a language which is enthusiastically supported by developers and Web coders worldwide. Well worth a read."
