The Perl programming bible

This is the Perl programming bible. It's all in here. However there is a caveat, it's a bible so it has some religion in it. The style is somewhat ambling at times and occasionally obtuse. So if you are trying to learn Perl from scratch, read the aptly named "Learning Perl" book first (as I did). This book will then serve as an excellent guide to the more advanced features and a reference.

The best C# book for visual Studio

Note to Amazon staff:
Please take down the review by:Reviewer: alleyrat001 from Watervliet, NY United States March 6, 2004
"alleyrat" is obviously talking about a different book for C++ not c#. You must clear up with him which text he is referring to but it is obvious that none of the page references even remotely match.
This erroneous low score is dragging down the overall review rating.
I liked the book so much that I took it upon myself to help right this wrong.
I bought about a dozen C# books from a store that does close-outs. For a few dollars I stocked a full C# reference library with all the major titles. I may not be an expert but if there is a C# text I have read at least parts of it.
Even though it is not a reference text and they do not go into some fancier stuff in too much detail, the way the authors explain and properly use the power of Visual Studio is so good that I wind up using this book more than any other.
I may dig more for speciific examples in other ref. books or on the net(who doesn't) but if I want to get the solid explanation I start here.
You cannot write productively .net code without VS!
when you see a book that says in the the Intro that you can whip out your ole' Notepad and go just keep going... Those are the geeks that will keep you going in circles with cryptic explanations of a term that include three or more new never previously defined terms.
Ole' Notepad is like a flight instructor coming to class and saying: "You can fly from Houston to Seattle and you can also walk so class, put on your walking shoes and bon voyage!" "But sir, what about flying?" "Well we'll get into that when you walk back from Seattle."
So if you do not want to walk( or crawl) with .net you have to start with the Visual Studio IDE right off the bat and this book does just that best.
Even though I had a whole shelf of other books already I had to pay full price for this one and it was worth every penny.

Simply the Best

Absolutely the best book ever written on Multicasting. No books ever cleared my concepts about multicasting. Multicasting was not an easy topic for me before I read this book. But now it'a piece of cake and the credit goes to Mr. Williamson.
