Personally, I found the book distinctly disappointing. If you already have some level of detailed knowledge about the common file formats, it's little more beyond glorified POD. You already know that JPEG encodes images in 8x8 blocks using a quantized DCT and what that means? Then you won't get anything out of this book.

For those who have very little background in the subject I can see it being useful, but those more intimate with the subject will not get anything for their money. I recommend you leaf through the pages and sample a few chapters before you buy it. You will most likely quickly notice whether you can get anything out of it.

Makeshifts last the longest.

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.
