About the Books

Learning Perl Exercises

  • 100%


  • EPUB

  • MOBI

Each chapter of O'Reilly Media's Learning Perl has exercises at the end. At in-person classes, I've often posed extra exercises for those who wanted to do more. I've collected all of those in this book and provided detailed, in-depth discussions of the various ways to solve each exercise.

Our original idea was to provide this companion book as a bundle for formal classes, and I still hope that's how people might use it. If you are an instructor, take the exercises you see here an incorporate them into your own classes. You don't have to buy one for every student, but I hope that you'll be kind to me at checkout. Your support allows me to create even more Perl content.

This book was originally published by O'Reilly Media as Learning Perl Student Workbook and last published in 2012. I reverted the rights back to myself and updated the book for the Seventh Edition of Learning Perl. Additionally, I kept some chapters on Databases and Smart Matching that we've removed from the book. This new version is another book from Perl School.

Preparing for Perl 7

Level up to Perl 5.32 to be ready for Perl 7
  • 103


  • PDF

Perl 7 will be essentially Perl 5, but with different default settings. You'll learn about the changes that have happened with Perl in the last decade and what you need to do to be compatible with v5.32. Along with that, you'll learn about the optional settings Perl 5 has and what you need to do when they are enabled by default rather than by request. You have plenty of time to ensure a smooth transition.

Much of this is basic best practice advice that benefits your Perl 5 programs even if you never make the jump to Perl 7. For instance, the strict and warnings features will automatically be enabled. Handle those in your existing code and you should have more robust programs, giving you more confidence in your work.

Perl New Features

The evolution of Perl from v5.10 to now.
  • 417


  • PDF

  • EPUB

  • MOBI

I've collected to "new features" posts from The Effective Perler, updated them, and put them into a single book. Read about the new features, deprecations, and other changes to Perl since v5.8 to v5.32.
