Modern Perl is a powerful, elegant, flexible, and fun programming language. Yet much of the Perl 5 code in the world — even published in books which should know better — fails to show off the language.
Modern Perl, the book, demonstrates how to get the most out of Perl 5. It collects the wisdom and knowledge of Perl masters and explains how the language really works — including the latest features and best practices of Perl 5.10.1.
Onyx Neon Press intends to publish this book in November 2009. You can help by reviewing it and making suggestions.
