Higher-Order Perl: Transforming Programs with Programs

By Mark Jason Dominus

Such a lot Perl programmers have been initially educated as C and Unix programmers, so the Perl courses that they write endure a robust resemblance to C courses. besides the fact that, Perl accommodates many beneficial properties that experience their roots in different languages corresponding to Lisp. those complicated positive factors are usually not good understood and are hardly utilized by such a lot Perl programmers, yet they're very robust. they could automate initiatives in daily programming which are tough to unravel in the other means. some of the most strong of those concepts is writing services that manufacture or adjust different services. for instance, rather than writing ten comparable capabilities, a programmer can write a normal development or framework which could then create the features as wanted in accordance with the development. For numerous years Mark Jason Dominus has labored to use sensible programming strategies to Perl. Now Mark brings those versatile programming equipment that he has effectively taught in several tutorials and coaching classes to a much broader viewers.

* Introduces robust programming methods—new to so much Perl programmers—that have been formerly the area of computing device scientists
* progressively builds up self assurance by way of describing suggestions of innovative sophistication
* exhibits find out how to enhance daily courses and comprises various enticing code examples to demonstrate the tools
