RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 49698897 LA English T1 Web, graphics, and Perl/TK : best of the Perl journal A1 Orwant, Jon., PB O'Reilly PP Beijing; Cambridge, Mass. YR 2003 SN 0596003110 9780596003111 AB In its first five years of existence, The Perl Journal (TPJ) 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. TPJ explained critical Perl topics and demonstrated Perl's utility for fields as diverse as astronomy, biology, economics, AI, and games. Back issues were hoarded, or swapped like trading cards. No longer in print format, The Perl Journal remains a proud and timeless achievement of Perl during on of its most exciting periods of development. Web, Graphics & Perl/Tk is the second volume of The Best of the Perl Journal, compied 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 five years of publication and immortalized them into three volumes. The forty articles included in this volume are simply some of the best Perl articles ever written on the subjects of graphics, the Web, and Perl/Tk, by some of the best Perl authors and coders. Much of Perl's success is due to its capabilities for developing web sites; the Web section covers popular topics such as CGI programs, mod_perl, spidering, HTML parsing, security, and content management. The Graphics section is a grab bag of techniques, ranging from simple graph generation to ray tracing and real-time video digitizing. The Perl/Tk section shows you how to use the popular Per/Tk toolkit for developing graphical applications that work on both the Unix/Linux and Windows without a single change. Written by twenty-three of the most prominent and prolific members of the closely-knit Perl community, including Lincoln Stein, Mark-Jason Dominus, Alligator Descates, and Dan Brian, this anthology does what no other book can, giving unique insight into the real-life applications and powerful techniques made possible by Perl.
