This book picks up right where "Learning Perl" leaves off. With
"Intermediate Perl," you'll graduate from short scripts to much
larger programs, using features that make Perl a general-purpose
language. This gentle but thorough guide introduces you to modules,
complex data structures, and object-oriented programming.
Each chapter is small enough to be read in just an hour or two,
ending with exercises to help you practice what you've learned. If
you're familiar with the material in "Learning Perl" and have the
ambition to go further, Intermediate Perl will teach you most of
the core Perl language concepts you need for writing robust
programs on any platform.
Topics include: Packages and namespaces References and scoping,
including regular expression references Manipulating complex data
structures Object-oriented programming Writing and using modules
Testing Perl code Contributing to CPAN
Just like "Learning Perl," material in this book closely follows
the popular introductory Perl course the authors have taught since
1991. This second edition covers recent changes to the language up
to version 5.14.
