++ for a fine review.

I bought this book at Barnes & Noble about six months ago for the lofty price of $8 ($7 and some change actually). It was in the markdown section. I then found it at Half Price Books for $6 and I kicked myself.

I too enjoyed reading Programming Web Graphics. I must say that I learned quite a bit about the primary file formats used on the internet.

While this book is filled with useful information, a good portion is out of date. Some of the modules mentioned are deprecated (GIFGraph for example). It seemed to focus on creating GIFs with GD (GD no longer creates them). I am probably leaving something important out too.

I have to concur with davorg on this one... if you have not already purchased Programming Web Graphics, then get Perl Graphics Programming instead.

Updated: fixed a typo, and reworded one sentence.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
