Macperl: Power And Ease. by. Vicki Brown, Chris Nandor.

Macperl: Power And Ease.

Authors: Vicky Brown, Christopher M. Nandor. Publisher: Prime Time Freeware.

MacPerl: Power and Ease is designed for both the beginner to Perl, and those who want to take advantage of Perl on Mac OS. It’s divided into three primary sections: learning about programming, learning about Perl, and advanced topics. The prospective audience for this book, like the Macintosh community, is extremely diverse.

Vicki Brown (23 August 1940 – 16 June 1991) was an English pop, rock and contemporary classical singer. She was a member of both The Vernons Girls and The Breakaways and was the first wife of fellow singer and musician Joe Brown and mother of the singer Sam Brown. Brown was born Victoria Mary Haseman, on 23 August 1940 in Liverpool, England. She married Joe Brown and, after leaving the Breakaways, remained a prolific session singer under the name Vicki Brown.

Vicki Brown and I are working, sporadically, on a package called 'Mop' (Mother of perl), which adds Unix-like commands to a Perl- based shell. If we can get it to the point where we're reasonably happy with it, we'll talk about it on the MacPerl Pages and in the MacPerl book. Rich: Although the Mac has many tools for creating CGI applications, a few grainy tasks will always require programming.

If you want to use MacPerl (the excellent port of Perl to MacOS, loaded with useful Mac-specific functions), you can do it one of two ways:
You can buy this book; or you you can poke around aimlessly for about two years learning, by trial and error (and guess, and crash), what is clearly laid out in this book.
Two years ago I was an already fairly experienced Perler, but with little experience with MacPerl. If I'd had this book two years ago, it would have saved me more time than I really even want to admit -- weeks? Months?
As MacPerl is rapidly becoming the data-conversion meta-tool, file-management language, and all-around Swiss Army chainsaw of choice for MacOS, you can't afford not to have this book.

I'm glad this book was written because I love the Mac OS and want to see Perl developed on it. However, this book is not easy to use. It's clear that the authors do know what they're talking about, but they're not great at conveying lessons to the reader. Some script examples can be confusing to walk through when the authors say stuff like "Let's add this line to the script we've been writing" without telling you where in the script to add it, or what to line to replace. It seems as if they're so excited about the subject of the book that they fail to stick to repetetive teaching conventions (which I personally find very helpful with programming books. I'm sure not everyone does. Call me dry.) I plan to finish this book, but I actually found my C++ books easier to read, and that can't be becuase C++ is easier. I think with some revision, this book could be a great staple for Perl programming on the Mac. Namely: Pick a lesson format and stick with it. Don't just wander through the features of Perl. Still glad they wrote it, though. Viva the Mac OS. If you're an absolute beginner, buy this book if you're prepared to re-read sections. If you're somewhat experienced, this book will probably prove quite useful to you.

This book is poorly organized and very difficult to read. The authors write in a misleadingly friendly style peppered with lots of happy little exlaimation marks and supposedly literate quotes from somebody's book of quotations. But when it comes to actually explaining their topic, they fall short. MacPerl Power and Ease is not easy to read. It doesn't even make sense most of the way. I've had to go through it several times, making copious notes and drawing diagrams trying to get this stuff into my head. There must be a better way to teach programming than this! The best thing about the book is the CD, which has some very interesting freebies. But don't follow the author's directions as to what's on the CD because they'll just confuse you more.
I'm not aware of a better book for Perl users, but this is not one I'd recommend to an inexperienced person like myself. Though I've mastered almost any kind of program in desktop publishing, multimedia and web publishing, I'm still struggling with Perl.
All I really wanted to know was how to make CGI scripts. I'm poorer, farther behind in my regular work than I should be and I'm still wondering if I'll ever understand this language.
Bottom line: if you're an amateur looking to learn how to program, hire a geek or go to school, but don't expect to learn it from this book!
Sorryyy
Excellent!

This book touches on several subjects without really explaining very many of them. Perhaps written by persons better able to write code than books, the syntax is overly loose and informal. The really useful data in this book would fit about 20 pages. The rest is teaser and fluff, the beginning of an idea without the essence. MacPerl is a wonderful, free tool for the Macintosh, but this book is not worth the price of admission.
To sum it all up, its a hack job and a frustrating read.

Perl drives me nuts. This is not a language. This is a strange state of mind. But "MacPerl Power and Ease" does what every good book does. It makes me feel safe. That's why I recommend it to everybody who is afraid of Perl, (still) uses a mac and wants to learn that language. Buy it.
