Recommended books (by Sami). Recommendations are for original english-books, quality of translated version should be checked first. (e.g. finnish versions of O'Reilly books are often quite poor quality). Following links points to website of publisher
- Learning Perl
- Programming Perl (A bit old but edition 4 should be coming)
- Perl Cookbook (Very good book, but requires Perl skills)
- Perl Best Practices (Very good reading but requires basic Perl-skills)
In general, all english O'Reilly books are at least decent quality and can be recommended. Quality of translated versions varies quite a lot, at least in finnish versions.
PHP is used in www-pages and also in QC1 program which transfers data from rawdata-table to weather-data -table.
PHP has good website which has tutorials etc. Please note that many if not most php examples found from internet are bad quality made and copied by persons who don't know the language. Although PHP is relatively easy, it requires skills to make good programs.
Please add possible book recommendations. (Sami would start searching PHP book O'Reilly)
