To avoid this issue, he offers several alternatives, such as seeking a prebuilt package of GD::Graph for your system; using a different package, eg, one of the textual presentation tools described on the previous pages, like Text::Autoformat ; remote controlling some other dedicated graphing program eg, gnuplot ; using the more powerful and complex RRD tool, described in the following section.
The author follows this paradigm throughout the book: describing a problem and a range of tools that can be used to solve it, and going into enough depth so that you can make an informed judgment about where to spend your time when faced with a similar problem: search CPAN for data about these and other modules that could help; or start with the tools and approach that he described in detail and apply them to your situation. Another example: in Chapter 13, he chooses nemesis as a network packet builder.
He mentions several alternative tools and also lists the reasons for his choice: the package has been well-maintained and has good multiplatform support. However, it relies on libnet 1. You might have to handle this configuration problem before being able to use the tool. The note includes a link to a web page that covers the issue. The end of each chapter contains a list of the Perl modules that were covered, and an annotated bibliography of relevant documents and web pages.
The seven appendices, are short tutorials with basic data about some of the technologies used in the book.
These are valuable if you are new to the topic, or if you have not worked in that area recently. There are many gems of insight throughout the book, especially in the highlighted sidebars, notes, warnings, and even footnotes, eg, "Friends don't let friends use Access as a multiuser database. I only found one possible typo in my reading, and there was only one errata noted at the publisher's site for the book. I can offer one suggestion: emphasize the valuable sidebars. They often give a flavor of the issues that you might face when working with the technology being described.
