Is it possible to get the Code and Errata for this book?

Hi there,

Please check out this (V)FAQ:

Cheers,

In another FAQ article, I found the passage:

Where can I ask a question about a previous edition of a book that is on the Wrox book list at http://www.wrox.com/misc-pages/booklist.shtml ?
We did also purchase the rights to previous editions of books on our list. Your best source for answers on the previous edition is probably the current edition's book forum at p2p.wrox.com in the Book category.

Soooo...

Does anyone have an errata list for this version of the book? My project was delayed for an embarrassing length of time due to an error on p. 112: the ^ and | operator descriptions should be switched.

Thanks,
Sean

Well, I think the same applies to this as well.
As you probably found out, Wiley did buy the second edition and published the third edition, but apparently, they didn't buy the (rights of) this book, so I guess it went to APress as well.

Check out their homepage, and follow the Download link.
AFAIK, they publish the errata together with the code for each book.

Cheers,

Imar

Hmm, the FAQ says they DID buy the rights to the previous editions, so why do you think that they did not buy the rights to this one? I see that I should ask in the current version's forum rather than the "other books" forum, however.

Thanks,
Sean

Hi Sean,

True, but apparently this book is different. Maybe Wiley considered this book an "old book" and therefore only acquired the second edition. From what I know, Wiley got to choose first, and then Apress got whatever was left. You'll find the first edition at the Apress site.

Cheers,

Imar

You are right, but they don't make it easy. Apparently you can't find it with a search, but if you go to http://support.apress.com/ the files are available. I missed it the first 2 times I looked through their site.

Thank you,
Sean

P.S. The file doesn't mention the problem on p.112 anyway. Someone with a newer version should see if it is still there. =]
