My fourth publication. It explains a few themes in actual fact and selections up on info in equipment and nomenclature that have been disregarded of the others, making them complicated. The textual content, itself, is comparatively transparent, and there are sturdy indexes and lists.
Still, the writer makes assumptions of the reader's familiarity with coding, leaves the occasional logical stretch to be found out. The examples aren't super consumer pleasant. it really is thorough, probably an excessive amount of for a primary examine Hypertext Preprocessor.

Example text

But Tom's skills Page xxiii are computational indeed: discussions resulting from Tom's review were eventually joined in by Larry Wall, who caught a few of my more major Perl gaffes. Mike Stok, Jon Orwant, and Henry Spencer helped with detailed reviews (in particular, I'd like to thank Henry for clarifying some of my misconceptions about the underlying theory). Mike Chachich and Tim O'Reilly also added valuable feedback. A review by experts is one thing, but with a book designed to teach, a review by a non-expert is also important.

This is not much of a shortcoming because the scope of the problem (to provide convenient ways to specify groups of files) is limited, well, simply to filenames. On the other hand, dealing with general text is a much larger problem. Prose and poetry, program listings, reports, lyrics, HTML, articles, code tables, the source to books (such as this one), word lists . . you name it, if a particular need is specific enough, such as "selecting files," you can develop a specialized scheme or tool. However, over the years, a generalized pattern language has developed which is powerful and expressive for a wide variety of uses.

Vern Paxson (author of flex) and Henry Spencer (regular-expression god) have also been a great help. For enlightenment about some of the very early years, before regular expressions entered the realm of computers, I am indebted to Robert Constable and Anil Nerode. For insight into their early computational history, I'd like to thank Brian Kernighan (co-author of awk), Ken Thompson (author of ed and co-creator of Unix), Michael Lesk (author of lex), James Gosling (author of the first Unix version of Emacs, which was also the first to support regular expressions), Richard Stallman (original author of Emacs, and current author of GNU Emacs), Larry Wall (author of rn, patch, and Perl), Mark Biggar (Perl's maternal uncle), and Don Libes (author of Life with Unix, among others).
