Programming Perl: Unmatched power for text processing and scripting

Tom Christiansen, brian d foy, Larry Wall, Jon Orwant Ph.D.

Adopted as the undisputed Perl bible soon after the first edition appeared in 1991, Programming Perl is still the go-to guide for this highly practical language. Perl began life as a super-fueled text processing utility, but quickly evolved into a general purpose programming language that’s helped hundreds of thousands of programmers, system administrators, and enthusiasts, like you, get your job done.

In this much-anticipated update to "the Camel," three renowned Perl authors cover the language up to its current version, Perl 5.14, with a preview of features in the upcoming 5.16. In a world where Unicode is increasingly essential for text processing, Perl offers the best and least painful support of any major language, smoothly integrating Unicode everywhere—including in Perl’s most popular feature: regular expressions.

Important features covered by this update include:

  • New keywords and syntax
  • I/O layers and encodings
  • New backslash escapes
  • Unicode 6.0
  • Unicode grapheme clusters and properties
  • Named captures in regexes
  • Recursive and grammatical patterns
  • Expanded coverage of CPAN
  • Current best practices
