Perl Pocket Reference, 4/e
The Perl Pocket Reference is an invaluable reference for those who
find themselves frequently searching for a quick answer to a question or
reminder of a syntax rule. This handy, well-organized quick reference condenses
stacks of Perl documentation down to the most essential at-your-fingertips
facts. For ease-of-use, convenience, and price, this little reference is the
first place Perl programmers look when they need an answer quickly.
The Perl Pocket Referenc provides a complete overview of the Perl programming language, all packed into a convenient, carry-around booklet. It is updated for Perl 5.8, and covers a summary of Perl syntax rules, a complete list of operators, built-in functions, and standard library modules, all with brief descriptions. Also included are the newest Perl features, such as enhanced regular expressions, multithreading, the Perl compiler, and Unicode support.
The Perl Pocket Reference, 4th Edition, is the perfect companion to the authoritative books on Perl published by O'Reilly & Associates: Programming Perl, Learning Perl, and the Perl Cookbook. This pocket reference will never make it to the bookshelf--dog-eared and well worn, it will remain within arms reach of the keyboard or tucked in a back pocket, where it will be referred to on a daily basis.
