Thanks for the kind comments...
Thanks for the kind comments. Ed and I wrote the book with the hopes that it would expose and release the power of Perl.
In this hurry-up-grab-shelf-space world of technical publishing, we were blessed with an editor who gave us time to do the job as best we could. As for the technical errors, they are generally due to translations of code to print font. I apologize for any confusions this has caused.
