1. Introduction: Becoming a Master > Who Should Read This Book

Who Should Read This Book

I wrote this book as a successor to Intermediate Perl, which covered the basics of references, objects, and modules. I’ll assume that you already know and feel comfortable with those features. Where possible, I make references to Intermediate Perl in case you need to refresh your skills on a topic.

If you’re coming directly from another language and haven’t used Perl yet, or have only used it lightly, you might want to skim Learning Perl and Intermediate Perl to get the basics of the language. Still, you might not recognize some of the idioms that come with experience and practice. I don’t want to tell you not to buy this book (hey, I need to pay my mortgage!), but you might not get the full value I intend, at least not right away.
