Mastering Algorithms with Perl

Book Description

While there are dozens of books on programming algorithms, never before has there been one that uses Perl. Using the algorithms explained here, you’ll be able to carry out traditional programming tasks in a high-powered, efficient, easy-to-maintain manner with Perl. This guide assumes a basic understanding of Perl syntax and functions, but not necessarily any background in computer science. The authors clearly explain the reasons for using various classic programming techniques, the kind of applications that use them, and — most important — how to code these algorithms in Perl. Topics range in complexity from sorting and searching to statistical algorithms, numerical analysis, and encryption. If you are an amateur programmer, this book will fill you in on the essential algorithms needed to solve problems just like an expert. If you’ve learned algorithms in other languages, you will be surprised at how much different (and often easier) it is to implement them in Perl.

‘An O’Reilly book, and what a good one it is. And what a fun one too: a book on algorithms for Perl. Yowza! As far as I know, this is a first. But otherwise this standard O’Reilly fare: well written, well edited, well designed (note the wolf on the cover), all you will expect and get from this publisher time and time again. And no, I don’t haved shares in O’Reilly!’ – Julian Bucknall, Developers Review, June 2000. ‘…and the authors show every sign of enjoying themselves in writing it. It’s a great read, as much for the byways it opens up as for the possibility of using it to attack real-world problems. It marks a sort of coming of age for the language and most people who use Perl as a day to day ‘Swiss army chainsaw’ will enjoy it.’ – Fiachra O Marcaigh, Irish Times, February 21st 2000

About the Author
Jarkko Hietaniemi is the creator and Master Librarian of CPAN: Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. He has also been known to frequent Perl developer forums. Luckily enough, getting his MSc in CS in the field of parallel computing didn’t interfere overly much with his Perl and UNIX hacking. During those savored moments of off-line time, he fancies gobbling up speculative fiction and popular science. His real life employer is Nokia Research Center.

John Macdonald has been using Perl commercially since 1988 for a suite of Unix system administration tools. His background with Unix dates back to the days when Unix was written in PDP-11 assembler and later includes representing the University of Waterloo at the first UNIX Users Meeting at City University of New York in the mid-1970s while finishing his M. Math degree. (In those days before the creation of Usenix, the people at the meeting would sit together around a single table.) In addition, his background includes work on compilers, kernel internals, device drivers and the like. He has also been observed partaking in recreational computing activities.

Jon Orwant, a well-known member of the Perl community, founded The Perl Journal and co-authored OReillys bestseller, Programming Perl, 3rd Edition.
