5 - Programming the Perl DBI - Tim Bunce
A nice book indeed but it needs a major overhaul to bring it in line with the present version of DBI
. It dates back to 2000!
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
