A Good Solution to a Tough Problem

When I discovered Perl I though it's a quick and dirty way to automate admin tasks. I was wrong. The really quick and dirty way is Expect. Expect works like Helpdesk hotline. You call them and they ask you what you see and tell you what you should type. Sometimes you just have no alternatives especially if you're short on time. But the language is pretty tricky (e.g. if you want to look for '$' in regexp, you should use '\\\$' pattern, etc) and I couldn't learn it using just examples included in the distribution package. Then I spent some time searching for the good tutorial and this book was the best I found. Expect is surprisingly poorly documented and I didn't find any other books about it. There are some articles in the Internet, but usually they don't give you the whole picture. This book includes many examples, easy stuff in the beginning to get you started and very advanced in the end. That's everything you need to learn expect and it's written pretty friendly. In some places it's very informal but not too much.

Title: The C++ Programming Language (Special 3rd Edition)
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
A wonderful book, but one that contains some pitfalls.

This is destined to be a classic text. Modeled on the already-classic "The C Programming Language", it is at least as clear and better-organized. Be warned, though, that some of the features covered in this book are not actually implemented in current C++ compilers. This book covers what C++ _should_ be, and _will_ be in a few years. But not quite what it is _today_

Title: The Book of Nero 6 Ultra Edition: CD and DVD Burning Made Easy

Easy composition of audio CDs

A diverse portfolio of capabilities centred around writing and reading CDs and DVDs. Most operating systems for desktops now let you write a CD or DVD. But typically this is for any type of data. You certainly want this ability.

But there are special types of data, described by Wang, that are very important to many users. When the data consists of audio or video, in various standard encodings. Nero 6 is devoted to the easy handling of these types. For example, it has a simple Wave Editor, to edit sound files. With specialised abilities like a 6 band equaliser and being able to speed up or slow down an audio recording. Wisely, Wang skips the underlying theory, which is heavy on fast Fourier transforms and extended manipulations in frequency space. He shows how you can straightforwardly use techniques described at a musician's level of decision making.

Wang also talks about how Nero can play DVD movies on your computer. Granted this is an impressive ability. But personally, I'd pass on this. If I watch a DVD, I'd prefer it on a real TV screen, and so should you. But undoubtedly, some readers will thrill to watching DVDs on their computers.
