About the Book
The book is based on the material of the most popular Perl Tutorial found on the Perl Maven site. Its creation was supported by 100 people in a crowdfunding campaign in March 2018. The book covers the basics of the Perl programming language. It introduces all the concepts you need to know to put together a Perl script or take apart one written by someone else.
The book explains both the plain Perl version of doing things if you need to maintain Perl code running on an older version of Perl. It also shows you modern, cleaner and shorter approaches for when you have the freedom to use a recent version of Perl and CPAN modules.
