Learning Perl (Nutshell Handbook)
Learning Perl (Nutshell Handbook)
von Randal L Schwartz
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen It is Unix-specific, but still useful for any perl platform, 15. März 2000
Many reviews below said that this book is good for Unix hackers only, but I found the refrences to Unix more an enlightening than an impediment; I was learning some unix features in the context of perl :) . And, for those few platform specific tasks you will most likely need, there is more than enough online documentation, and much of it is included in the Perl download for whatever port you'll use. I myself started using MacPerl, and shortly after was writing a command line interpreting shell-like program as an educational project. (Which reminds me, does anyone know how to send backquote-like commands to MPW? any advice appreciated!)...
So even if this book has a few Unix-specific features, the amount of documentation availible will fill in the gaps for your OS.


C++ 2/E How to Program (Prentice Hall (engl. Titel))
C++ 2/E How to Program (Prentice Hall (engl. Titel))
von Harvey M. Deitel
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not a good Intro to programming theory but..., 22. Februar 2000
This book contains many little details in order to live up to the ANSI/ISO C++ standard. Some compilers won't work unless your code is immaculate to this standard, like codewarrior. I had a hell of a time getting it to work before getting this book, so that aspect alone was a big help.
Overall, this book is ideal for a second semester C++ book, as it rushes through the basics to get to OOP topics. With that in mind, it would make a solid refrence, too. For those interested in an intro to programming with C++, take a look at 'Starting out with C++' which is geared more toward that purpose.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good overall intro to programming theory with C++, but..., 11. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Starting Out With C++ (Lehrbuch)
My only complaint about this book is the fact that its examples need to be revised, or they won't work with an ANSI strict compiler, such as codewarrior (although I wouldn't reccomend an ANSI strict compiler for any beginner).
For example, all if the main functions in this book have a void return type, which can cause errors, where in codewarrior you need to return an int '0' to flag the end of your program. Also, You'll need to include the "using namespace std" directive in ANSI strict.
This book does go well with Borland C++, however, as it isn't as picky as many other compilers to be had. THe error messages you'll get from an ANSI strict compiler may confuse the hell out of a beginner, so that's my only detracting argument. But team this book up with Borland and you'll have a five star setup.
In the more advanced C++ classes I've had, the book of choice id Deitels 'C++, how to program' which is quite a bit more taxing on the student, but as a result is filled with many more details, and far more ambitious end-of chapter programming assignments, leaving you reeling with facts to sort out and take advantage of (for the more computer savvy students, thats a good thing)
All in all, this book is an ideal intro to students with no prior knowledge of programming (and not much knowledge of computers in general), but for the ANSI thing, It is one star short of perfection. Average students will like this book, but those few who are learning programming out of more than just the vocational value, may want to check out Deitels book.


CGI: Internet Programming in C++ and C
CGI: Internet Programming in C++ and C
von Mark Felton
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Covers the fundamentals of CGI with C/C++ well..., 27. Januar 2000
...but, for one thing, for the price, this book should come with a CD with all the code...it's a huge pain to type all that is given. Also, the C++ classes (of most concern to me) seem to be overly complex, theres a whole load of member functions to replace the amersands in a query string with newlines, and a bunch of other stuff, where a couple of strtok(); functions would have done the job.
The main strength of this book is that it teaches you the mechanics of how a compiled C/C++ program for CGI works. The string parsing doesn't take much ingenuity either, you just have to know the format.

von Randal L Schwartz

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not straightforward, but contains valuble information, 26. Januar 2000
While this book isn't quite as comprihensive as 'Programming Perl' by Larry Wall, it still assumes basic knowledge of procedural programming. I bought this book after one semester of C++, and shortly thereafter, I was rewriting that semester's work in Perl. Also, the 'Regular Expressions' Chapter does make several refrences to grep and sed, which seems to irritate some non-UNIX savvy reviewers. I have no real knowledge of UNIX shell scripting, but I was able to understand the sections in the book which make heavy reference to it, those references may just make it easier for UNIX programmers to undestand; it's hardly an impediment to anyone else.
Overall, the book is not easy reading, but if you got an 'A' in your introductory C/C++ class, this book should not be a problem. One common thing I've noticed about programming books on amazon is that, either reviewers praise or bash a particular book, so make sure you 'get' programming before spending $50 on a non-introductory book like this one.
