From the Publisher
The book promotes the use of Perl as a programming language, encouraging the creation of legible and sensible programs so as to dispel the image of Perl as a confusing and obscure language. In other words: Don't worry, whatever your current experience level in the world of Perl, this book has something for you. It covers both basic and advanced aspects of Perl, Apache modPerl and Perlscript for use with Wintel systems and stresses the cross-platform nature of Perl, with extensive examples and techniques.
About the Author
Simon Cozens is a freelance programmer who has extensive commercial experience developing in Perl for Oracle, amongst other clients.

Unfortunately, it doesn't cover the Perl debugger in any depth. Despite the fact that coverage is a bit old, it is quite adequate to get started and be very comfortable with the language. I wish it was available on Kindle.
So ... I thought I would download this item, "Beginning Perl", just to see what it is, since it is only $0.99.
I am rating this as 1 star since I just downloaded it and the first thing I noticed is that it has no table of contents or apparently an index. This does not even look like it is a book. This may be the best book in the universe on Perl when I can click past all the beginning stuff to get to something useful, but without a TOC, index and linking, it is useless.
If this does turn out to be something useful, I will come back and amend this review, but it is very unlikely with no linking, and I am irked that this is even being charged for - Amazon customers ought to be paid for even looking at something so undeveloped and primitive, or pull it off the Kindle shelf until it is a real useful item.
In fact the next thing I am going to do is to complain about this to Amazon.Com since it is not, in fact, a book, and is useless.
