Perl Resource Kit -- Win32 Edition 1st Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
This large box set represents the state of the art in Perl for 32-bit Windows systems. In this package, you have the Perl core modules, extensions, utilities, and scores of excellent technical documentation. If you want to develop Perl software under Windows NT or other modern Windows environments, you need the Perl Resource Kit-- Win32 Edition.
The CD-ROM is the big news here. It contains the Win32 Perl core binaries, plus PerlCtrl, PerlCOM, PL2EXE, and Perl for Internet Server Application Programming Interface (ISAPI). You'll also find Perl Web-server extensions and the ActiveState Perl Debugger environment. All this is in addition to the examples from the books! Perhaps best of all, the disk holds the language's source files. Yes, you could get most of this software online, but the convenience of having all the binaries and source together on a CD-ROM--to say nothing of the documentation--makes the Perl Resource Kit--Win32 Edition extraordinary and worthwhile. --David Wall
About the Author
David Futato has a bachelor of science in creative writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, so -- with such a unique degree -- O'Reilly seemed like the logical choice; David has worked as a production editor at O'Reilly for more than two years. Stepping to the other side of the fence for the Perl Resource Kit, this is David's first full writing/editorial assignment. He lives just outside of Boston with his husband Ron, their two cats, Cairo and Minsk, and more CDs and vinyl than any one person should own. Erik Olson is a renegade linguist who makes a living developing software for Win32 platforms. Erik is currently the chief technical officer at Axiom Technologies, LC, a software outsourcing shop. Erik delivers developer training, system administration, and program/concept development for a number of large-scale horizontal and vertical applications. Working as a program developer since 1986, Erik has implemented a variety of systems ranging from point-of-sales systems to horizontal PIM products to real-time financial market applications. Although much of his work is done in C++, he has particular interests in Web development and scripting languages. Erik coauthored Learning Perl on Win32 Systems with Tom Christiansen and Randal Schwartz. Brian Jepson is a "100-foot-tall nonstudent" who specialized in Social Sabotage as a student at the University of Rhode Island. His now-defunct coffeehouse, Cafe de la Tete, was part of a successful "culture jamming" experiment disguised as a program for mass liberation. Not content to enjoy the relaxed life of a coffee house operator and student, Brian made his way to Wall Street, where he remained cleverly disguised as a database programmer for many years. After picking up a copy of Programming Perl, he entered a larval stage, and emerged with the realization that Perl's aesthetic and culture would allow him to get back to where he was trying to get to in the first place. Wherever that is...
