Part of the beauty of the book is to describe processes you would have to wade thru many readmes. The GD Library part is deceptive as the GD library install has a lot of prerequitites, not listed in the book. The book shows some cool examples on the GD library ...a little more content in this area around the mysterious subject(maybe if they simplified this too) of how to create the shared library libgd. This appears to be a mystery on the web in general. I am not a novice PERL programmer and it was sad to see how convoluted it was to get the GD library to work vs, as described in the book. Bottom Line in this review....this is a book worth buying, however, be careful not to assume that getting thr GD module...one of the more glamourous modules discussed, is as easy as stated.
Doug and Frank...keep up the good work.your book helps to start fill a gap in the Perl module area....well written, easy to follow.
