The Perl Resource Kit — UNIX Edition is the definitive Perl distribution, complete with essential documentation for all Perl users. This must-have collection of software and over 1,700 pages of documentation for webmasters, programmers, and system administrators.
The Kit contains the first comprehensive tutorial and reference documentation for hundreds of essential third-party Perl extension modules used for creating applications and more. The accompanying CD-ROM features commercially enhanced Perl utilities developed exclusively for the Kit by Larry Wall. All brought to you by the premier publisher of Perl and UNIX books and documentation, O'Reilly & Associates.
The Kit includes four tutorial and reference books that contain systematic documentation for the most important Perl extension modules, as well as documentation for the tools on the CD. These books are not available elsewhere or separately.
Software tools on the Kit's CD-ROM include:
Some interesting reference books, an outdated CDROM and some text books. All in all, a pretty good package, but it is absolutely not an introductionary package.
