This review is from: Higher-Order Perl: Transforming Programs with Programs (Paperback)
I am NOT a SW guy - I am a perl autodidact HW engineer. I have written some pretty BIG "scripts" that get the job done - but a fringe "benefit" to me from the demise of the previous company I worked for is that I DON'T HAVE to maintain those scripts - a big bowl of spaghetti :(
I tried several times to learn the OO side of Perl but this stuff was w-a-a-a-a-y out there for my scull :(
HOP just made it for me! I wish it was available 5 years ago so I wouldn't waste my time writing the aforementioned spaghetti! Study it! It will twist your brains to the point of pain but stick with it - well worthed - you won't look at scripting/programming the same old way ever again!
