5.0 von 5 Sternen Stimmige, nützliche Darstellung, 2. April 2001
Das einzige, was ich an diesem Buch vermisste, war eine Erklärung dafür, warum die vorherige Rowohlt Monographie über Rudolf Steiner, von Johannes Hemleben verfasst, durch dieses Buch ersetzt wurde.
Der Author beschreibt ruhig und tiefgründig den Werdegang Steiners, so dass man dessen Lebensenfaltung kontinuierlich mitverfolgen kann. Ein Grossteil des Textes besteht aus Steinerschen Zitaten. Diese sind sehr gut ausgewählt, so dass Wendepunkte in dessen Leben vorangekündigt und danach erst vollzogen werden. Was in der theosophischen Gesellschaft ablief, wie es zu Eurythmie und Waldorfschulen kam, wird alles klarer, so gut es auf 143 Seiten geht.
Wirklich verstehen kann man Rudolf Steiner aber auch nach diesem Buch nicht. Er schien von etwas anderem Getrieben zu sein, welches nur in Wenigen derart wirksam ist.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great small english dictionary, 29. Juli 2000
This dictionary has about the size of a fat science fiction paperback novel and a little over thousand pages. It has 65,000 entries (and 75,000 definitions). So it's really packed. For how much it contains, it's still handy. Any dictionary with all the possible words is much thicker. For that other purpose I have the Webster's New Encyclopaedic Dictionary.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical solutions on a professional level, 29. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Perl Cookbook (Taschenbuch)
If one knows basic perl, then this book, written by two of the topmost guys in the perl community, adds innumerable practical examples and discussions about them, for solving real world perl programming problems in a professional way. It may show one things perl can do, but which do not occure to everyone who has just learned the syntax and knows programming from less capable languages. It deals with topics from strings through IPC and Web. This book made perl working for several people I know.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perl OOP finally made understandable, 24. Juli 2000
After five years of perl hacking, and lot's of wondering about OOP in perl, this book finally relieved me. Single classes were never a problem, but multiple inheritance, was. Even in linear inheritance it was not easy to see, where the object data of the superclasses would go. Things are clarified here. The book also explains OOP as such, which is a good for learning or repetition. The author seems to be extraordinarely versatile in perl hacking and shows every detail of sophisticated use of perl OOP.
Although the book is perfect, besides the typoos (, but there is an errata page on the www), one wonders, whether perl is the ideal language for object oriented programming. It becomes once more clear, that perl is the most powerful language, but also the most complicated one. If one would apply the "tie()" function regularely, then nobody could read the code any more. Despite that, the book is needed, because perl is now everywhere, and it can only be good to master it.
The chapters of the book are: 1.) What you need to know first (an object-orientation primer), 2.) What you need to know second (a Perl refresher), 3.) Getting started, 4.) Blessing arrays and scalars, 5.) Inheritance, 7.) Polymorphism, 8.) Automating class creation, 9.) Ties, 10.) Operator overloading, 11.) Encapsulation, 12.) Genericity, 13.) Multiple dispatch, 14.) Persistent objects, A.) Quick reference guide, B.) What you might know instead [about other OO languages].

5.0 von 5 Sternen It was Latex, when we had no Word, 5. Juli 2000
LATEX, or TEX before, was the main way to create propper looking printed papers at the universities. Many of the LATEX users have since moved to Microsoft Word (with Endnotes). Nevertheless, LATEX makes it possible to create great documents from an ascii editor. There is also a small programm called lyx, now also klyx, which is a wysiwyg editor, which produces LATEX output.
This particular LATEX book is by written by the creator of LATEX, which rests, of course, above Knuths TEX. One can learn and look up LATEX in this book very well. It starts from scratch and makes one capable of creating medium complex documents. Still, one needs "The LATEX Companion", as well, which has double the size on goes into all the details needed for profesional work with LATEX.


Siva Puja and Advances Yajna
Siva Puja and Advances Yajna
von Swami Satyanada Saraswati
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shiva Mantrams, 1. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Siva Puja and Advances Yajna (Taschenbuch)
This book is excellent, but of course only then, if one really wants to get a lot of Shiva mantrams. It's stuffed from beginning to end with one mantram after the other, each in Sanskrit, first in the Devanagari script, then in Sanskrit but transliterated and then in English. Among the mantrams one finds for instance the thousand names of shiva, the arati etc. There are few small photographs, which show mudras needed during the pujas. But if one does not know pujas from personal attendance, it's difficult to use, understand and apply those mudras. There are also a few Yantras.
So the book is to recommend to everyone, who practices any form of Shaiva sadhana, independent of the philosophy. Pujas are not explained in this book, rather one gets the mantras for it. But one can use the mantras without pujas, as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lucid Systemprogramming, 29. Juni 2000
A superb book, a classic. Good explanations and lot's of ready to use code segments. Stevens was a Guru to most programmers and all appreciated his writings very much. I give only the table of contents, because that is something I like in reviews about such kinds of books:
1.) Introduction, 2.) Unix Standardization and Implementations, 3.) File I/O, 4.) Files and Directories, 5.) Standard I/O Library, 6.) System Data Files and Information, 7.) The Environment of a Unix Process, 8.) Process Control, 9.) Process Relationships, 10.) Signals, 11.) Terminal I/O, 12.) Advanced I/O, 13.) Daemon Processes, 14.) Interprocess Communication, 15.) Advanced Interprocess Communication, 16.) A Database Library, 17.) Communicating with a PostScript Printer, 18.) A Modem Dialer, 19.) Pseudo Terminals.
For many topics one needs his further books. Either the tripple set about TCP/IP or the double set about network programming. The last one is the newest book of him, just finished, before he died.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Real Swami, 29. Juni 2000
This small book consists of a short biography of Swami Prakashananda (58 pages) plus a lot of parables he told as his way to answer to requests of his pupils. This Swami seems to have had a very "rich" life. Lot's of travels and deep spiritual insights. One would really like to know more about him, but since he was not in the limelight, nearly nothing has remained about his pilgrimages. Nevertheless, it shows one, that there are great souls out there, even if nearly unknown. In the later part of his life he was a pupil of Swami Muktananda, and one learns here, that Muktananda would have liked Prakashananda to become his successor, Prakashananda declined, and therefore Chidvilasanda and Nityananda have been choosen. As we know from other sources, Nityanda left the "position", so nowadays one hears only about Chidvilasananda, when it comes to SYDA Yoga. But Swami Prakashananda was a man of his own and basically a Shakta in his Temple Sapta Shring. The book is short, but touching and worth reading. The author lived with the Swami for eight years and tells the story without bringing himself into it, which is quite an achievement. Thank you Titus:-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sophisticated STL book, 21. Juni 2000
This book deals with STL like in virtual algorythmic world. But that makes it possible to show the principles and usage of STL without loosing time or space for all the modern internet topics. The book is very precise and systematic. It helped me applying STL, when I first used it, and it worked. The book consists of three parts: 1.) A Tutorial Introduction to STL, 2.) Putting It Together: Example Programs, 3.) STL Reference Guide.
