Hello ladies and gentlemen! I'm happy to announce my 3rd e-book called "Perl One-Liners Explained." This book is based on the "Famous Perl One-Liners Explained" article series that I wrote over the last 3 years and that has been read over 500,000 times! I went through all the one-liners in the article series, improved explanations, fixed mistakes and typos, added a bunch of new one-liners, added an introduction to Perl one-liners and a new chapter on Perl's special variables.

Perl Considered Harmful. Avoid Perl at all costs.

Perl's only reason for existence is that, when it first came out, it was better than shell scripts. Since then much has changed. Many new scripting languages exist that do not have Perl's fundamental flaws.

If you want to write scripts, every other modern dynamic language is *much* better. Alternatives include: Python, Ruby, Lua, and Groovy.
