NEW EDITION OF O'REILLY'S "PERL CD BOOKSHELF" RELEASED
Sebastopol, CA--You've got five essential Perl books and you're about
to hit the road. Which do you take with you? Fortunately this is a
choice Perl programmers haven't needed to make since O'Reilly released
the first "Perl CD Bookshelf" in 1999. Now, with the just-released
"Perl CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0," Perl programmers have an up-to-date,
exhaustive Perl reference library that's completely portable, so being
without a favorite Perl reference is not a situation they're likely to
Perl programmers increasingly rely on the Web, online help, and online
information sources for solutions to complex problems. The second
edition of O'Reilly's "Perl CD Bookshelf" provides convenient online
access to updates of favorite Perl books on a single CD. This essential
library features a master index for all five bestselling Perl
books--with text extensively hyperlinked--and a powerful search engine,
so sought-after information can be quickly located. Packaged with a
hard copy of "Perl in a Nutshell," the entire library takes up less
than two inches of bookshelf space, but programmers on the move can
just grab the CD and go.
Formatted in HTML, "The Perl CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0" can be read by
any browser. The CD-ROM contains the complete, unabridged versions of:
--"Perl in a Nutshell" http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/perlnut/
--"Programming Perl, 3rd Edition" http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/pperl3/
--"Perl Cookbook" http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/cookbook/
--"Advanced Perl Programming" http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/advperl/
--"Perl for System Administration"
The five books, when purchased separately, would retail for $189.75,
but "The Perl CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0" retails for only $79.95.
What the readers and critics said about the first edition:
"This CD is a very handy collection of a number of well-known O'Reilly
Perl books. If you work on Perl-related stuff on various sites, a CD
with the content of 6 books is much easier on your back to carry around
with you. If you're a programmer who works on different client sites,
this is great replacement for a stack of good Perl books. For a
reasonable price, you get a truckload of information on a handy
portable medium."--Arjen Laarhoven, slashdot.org, Dec 1999
"...an excellent set of resources within a small package...an
outstanding compendium of techniques, procedures, facts, and basics for
any level of Perl programmer...This is an extraordinary collection. If
you use Perl, you need 'The Perl CD Bookshelf.'"--Elizabeth Zinkann,
"SYS ADMIN," Nov 1999
"I really had doubts about whether this publication would be of any
use. Those doubts disappeared when I saw the product and realized that
the search features could save oodles of time. I also plan to make
judicious use of browser bookmarks so I can remember the common places
in books that I need to access frequently...The prospect of being able
to emit complex CD searches in addition to a well-constructed handbook
makes it worthwhile."--Peter Collinson, "EXE," November 1999
