I sat across the dinner table one night from the guy who wrote that
book. From what I recall, he had just learned Perl himself the weekend
before he started writing it (I think from "Learning Perl", in fact).
No kidding. He was looking for something to write after he had just
completed "Netscape for Dummies", and the editor offered him this book.
