Slashdotter chromatic reviews Data Munging with Perl by David Cross. Chromatic: "The book plots a natural course through topics ordered by complexity. It opens with a theoretical
overview of data processing. This introduces terminology and outlines the general types of data one
might encounger. Additionally, the author writes with the authority of experience when exploring the
basic approaches and best practices. While other books aimed at novice users shy away from
programs-as-filters and data structures, Cross prefers to instill good habits from the start."
