Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials, Second Edition
Allison Randal, Dan Sugalski, Loepoid ToetschISBN: 059600737X; 5-9579-0086-9;
Distilling many years of Perl experience, including an insider's look at Perl development (the authors are members of the Perl 6 core development team) Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials , 2nd Edition is an unparalleled sneak-peek of what's coming in the widely-anticipated Perl 6. It includes succinct but thorough coverage of groundbreaking new developments such as Parrot--the language-independent interpreter engine. Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials also uncovers the most revolutionary change in the language itself--Apocalypse 12 on objects. The Apocalypse design documents (in the sense of "revealing", not "end-of-the-world") explain significant changes in new Perl 6 features, numbered according to the chapters in O'Reilly's landmark Camel book, Programming Perl . Perl gurus and programmers alike will rely on this slim but essential book for a clear view of the Perl horizon and to ensure they hit the ground running once this important new version of Perl is released.
