I just read the sample chapter for Java Cookbook. It was basically, Problem, Solution, Discussion. I have never owned a "recipes" book or "cookbook" for programming and wondered, Ian, if this was
  • how the entire book is structured and
  • is this the general format for all these types of books, or is this style unique to this book?


  • Thanks.

    Thanks for writing. Yes, this is the general "Cookbook" style originated with the Perl cookbook,
    copied by me and a few others, and then turned into a "franchise" by O'Reilly. So yes, all the
    O'Reilly cookbooks are in the same (and might I add very useful and successful :-)) format.

    Cheers
