5.0 out of 5 stars mod_perl Developer's Cookbook - Extremely helpful!, February 7, 2002
This review is from: mod_perl Developer's Cookbook (Paperback)
The authors of the "mod_perl Developer's Cookbook" have brought together in one place a collection of "best practices" for dealing with just about every aspect of mod_perl development.
The book begins by covering installation and configuration in such a way that you will avoid potential pitfalls and be able to create a custom built mod_perl enabled Apache web server with ease.
Once you've got your Apache/mod_perl web server up and running, then the authors take you on what amounts to a guided tour of just what mod_perl can do from the basics of understanding the Apache request object and all the "ins and outs" of the mod_perl API, to advanced URI manipulation, custom content creation, and tuning techniques that will make you a "mod_perl hero" among your peers.
After completing your whirlwind guided tour of the mod_perl API, then you get to take mod_perl out for a test ride. The authors explain each phase where mod_perl lets you tie into Apache from the server configuration and startup phase to stepping in at any point in the Apache request cycle.
There's alot here in the cookbook that should lead to a significant surge in effective mod_perl usage. You come away with numerous ideas on how to apply mod_perl to solve your web application needs. The examples are drawn from practical and "real-world" experience, and they don't shy away from getting down to the "nuts and bolts" of even XS programming when that's what is required to get the job done.
When you don't have it open for reference, the "mod_perl Developer's Cookbook" deserves a place on the "Must Have" section of your bookshelf.
