Mastering algorithms with Perl by Jon Orwant( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book assumes a basic understanding of Perl syntax and functions, but not necessarily any background in computer science. The authors explain the reasons for using various classic programming techniques, the kind of applications that use them, and how to code these algorithms in Perl." "If you are an amateur programmer, this book will fill you in on the essential algorithms you need to solve problems in the manner of an expert. If you have already learned algorithms in other languages, you will be surprised at how different (and often much easier) it is to implement them in Perl. The book even has the obligatory fractal program."--Jacket

Games, diversions, and Perl culture : best of the Perl journal by Jon Orwant( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Perl Journal (TPJ) did something most print journals aspire to, but few succeed. Within a remarkable short time, TPJ acquired a cult-following and became the voice of the Perl community. Every serious Perl programmer subscribed to it, and every notable Perl guru jumped at the opportunity to write for it. Back issues were swapped like trading cards. No longer in print format, TPJ remains the quintessential spirit of Perl--a publication for and by Perl programmers who see fun and beauty in an admittedly quirky little language. Games, Diversions, and Perl Culture is the third volume of The Best of the Perl Journal, compiled and re-edited by the original editor and publisher of The Perl Journal, Jon Orwant. In this series, we've taken the very best (and still relevant) articles published in TPJ over its 5 years of publication and immortalized them into three volumes. The 47 articles included in this volume are simply some of the best Perl articles ever written on the subjects of games, diversions, and the unique culture of this close-knit community, by some of the best Perl authors and coders. Games, Diversions & Perl Culture focuses on entertaining topics that make Perl users such fanatics about the language. You'll find all of the playful features TPJ offered over the years, including the Obfuscated Perl Contests, Perl Quiz Shows, humor articles, and renowned one-line recipes. The book also contains a panoply of quirky applications of Perl, including genetic algorithms, home automation, music programming, and an entire section on natural language processing. This anthology is an unmatched compendium of Perl lore

In its first five years of existence, The Perl Journal (TPJ) became the voice of the Perl community.

No longer in print format, The Perl Journal remains a proud and timeless achievement of Perl during one of its most exciting periods of development. Web, Graphics & Perl/Tk is the secon

EGGG : the extensible graphical game generator by Jon Orwant( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An ontology of games was developed, and the similarities between games were analyzed and codified into reusable software components in a system called EGGG, the Extensible Graphical Game Generator. By exploiting the similarities between games, EGGG makes it possible for someone to create a fully functional computer game with a minimum of programming effort. The thesis behind the dissertation is that there exist sufficient commonalities between games that such a software system can be constructed. In plain English, the thesis is that games are really a lot more alike than most people imagine, and that these similarities can be used to create a generic game engine: you tell it the rules of your game, and the engine renders it into an actual computer game that everyone can play
