books for mySQL & PHP & Perl
Authored by: tapella on Dec 16, '00 12:43:11AM
A looong time ago on Omnigroups' OSX-Talk list a guy posted a recommendation for:
-PHP Programming from Wrox Press
-MySQL book from New Riders


I haven't looked at either of these myself.


Personally, I picked up the Paul DuBois book 'MySQL' at Barnes and Noble a while ago
because I was going to run it on my Linux box at work, and that's also a good book. (And it
was on sale at B&N heh) I've seen this book recommended in several places. It's good for
people who aren't completely familiar with SQL or MySQL.


For Perl (ok a bit off topic, but not totally) you have to of course get the O'Reilly
Associates (ORA) books. Start with "Learning Perl" (also known as the Llama Book). The
blue one is current. After that is "Programming Perl" (aka the Camel Book). Again, blue is
current (v5). Pink is for an older version, but you should only see that as a used book.


Standard disclaimer: YMMV ;-)

books for mySQL & PHP & Perl
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 17, '01 04:18:47PM

I'm really getting a lot of out of the Beginning PHP book from Wrox (This is different from their Professional PHP book, and is a better place to start IMHO).

Note: I may have the exact titles wrong, but they're approximate.
