9781565924093: Perl Resource Kit -- Win32 Edition

The Perl Resource Kit -- Win32 Edition is an essential tool for Perl programmers who are expanding their platform expertise to include Win32, and for Win32 Webmasters and system administrators who have discovered the power and flexibility of Perl. The Kit contains some of the latest commercial Win32 Perl software from Dick Hardt's ActiveState Tool Corp., along with a collection of Perl modules that run on Win32, and a definitive documentation set from O'Reilly.

The Perl Resource Kit -- Win32 Edition provides:

  • Over 1800 pages of in-depth documentation covering hundreds of Perl modules and detailed instructions on the new Win32 Perl software. The books in the Kit are not available elsewhere and include:
  • Programming with Perl Modules, by Erik Olson
  • Perl Module Reference, two volumes compiled and edited by David Futato
  • A CD-ROM containing the complete Perl for Win32 5.005 distribution, plus new commercial Win32 Perl software, including:
    • Perl debugger (enables easy location of bugs and swift verification of your scripts)
    • Visual Package Manager (enhances installation of hundreds of certain Perl modules that run on Win32)
    • PerlCOM (enables access to Perl scripts as COM objects)
    • PerlCtrl (turns a Perl script into an ActiveX control)
    • Network Install (enables installation on a network)
    • Win32 Perl Help from O'Reilly and other tools for Perl developers

    The Perl Resource Kit, Win32 Edition, is brought to you by the premier publisher of Perl and Windows books and documentation, O'Reilly & Associates.

Review:

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:

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 an O'Reilly editor, hacker, and co-organizer of Providence Geeks and the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire. He's also a geek-at-large for AS220, a non-profit arts center in Providence, Rhode Island. AS220 gives Rhode Island artists uncensored and unjuried forums for their work and also provides galleries, performance space, fabrication facilities, and live/work space.



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. He's worked for O'Reilly for almost eight years, doing a little bit of everything, including production, editorial, and most recently book interior design. 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.
