One of my favorite Perl books.

This is one of my favorite Perl books. It really serves what it says it will. It covers a great amount of Perl coding, but like the title says, goes into a lot of networking code, functions and so on. For Perl network programming, you really should have and use this book.

A "porky pig" approach to learning the basics of VB5.0

As a former C and C++ programmer, I found Michael Halvorson's approach easy to use and very informative. This set contains everything a VB wannabe needs to rev up to speed in the language. After completeing the course I gave it to my wife. She's mid-way through it now and also very impressed. When you complete the course you won't be a professional VB programmer but you will have a good grasp of the basics of both the language and the development environment.

Quite Disapointed

I do read a lot of books from Don and other fellows. If we'll talk about minor mistakes and minor details, that will be waste of time. No one expected very serious book like One-on-One or similar. If you're new in Admin, that book is very good. If you don't know UNIX and want to care Oracle on it, than that book is very helphful. And if you're looking for "New Features" of 9I on UNIX - some utilities, or different outputs and results ( for example even Oracle is not tells about that export/import are working now is very different if compare from 7 to 9I, not just features only ), than this book is not for you (it is print of UNIX scripts, article about StatsPack - looks like from his other book, and UNIX lessons ).I will recommend this book only to junior-middle level people.
