Introduction to Perl Programming
Course SummaryThis course covers the various programming capabilities available in perl. Comparisons to both Shell and C programming are made as a point of reference for the programming background of the student. This course focuses on learning the lexical structure of a perl program, and writing "text file filtering" type programs. Though Perl is a UNIX-centric language, the class points out areas of note when using non-UNIX platforms, such as Win32 operating systems.
Audience:Anyone wanting a more powerful tool than shell scripts, and less hassle than maintaining many binary objects for multiple platforms to accomplish programming tasks.
Prerequisite Knowledge:A programming background of some kind is helpful, though not needed. Very helpful would be a background of experience in UNIX shell scripting, or/and "C" language programming, since you will find many similarities in Perl. Perl is also a good first language.
Terminal Objectives:Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to write and execute perl programs using the following:
Course Length:3 Days with extensive lab exercises
