This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I read the review of the book on slashdot. It sounds pretty good. Are there any plans to do similar books for Perl and Python? Perl could really use a best of CPAN book. If you hang around the Python lists long enough, you can figure out what are the more popular 3rd party modules, but a book about them would definitely help newcomers.
I'd love to write a book on Perl, but I'd be surprised if I did. The great - and terrible - thing about writing a CPAN book would be the selection: the gigantic, huge selection of modules which you could never, ever do justice to. (Try looking through the list of XML parsers; I heard it was over twelve. I haven't counted, but it's definitely a high number.)
I'm half considering writing a book on Python. My next book is on Ruby, and I'm *very* excited about it.
Take it easy,
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
