The Perl Programming course is a comprehensive course that explains the Perl programming language, from basic through advanced syntax. This course is aimed at a wide range of job roles, including Programmers, System Administrators, Web Authors, and Operators. The course provides the fundamentals needed to use the Perl programming language to write quick yet powerful scripts for a range of purposes, as well as provides an overview of Common Gateway Interface Programming, Object-Oriented Perl and Perl Debugging.

The course is taught on the Oracle Solaris Operating Environment. However, the material is suitable for any operating system, including Linux, UNIX, and Windows.

Learn To:

  • Describe the Perl Programming Language.
  • Implement Scalars.
  • List Control Structures.
  • Implement Arrays.
  • Describe Hashes.
  • Implement Basic I/O and Regular Expressions.
  • Describe Subroutines and Modules.
  • Manipulate Files and Directories.
  • Implement Perl.

Benefits To You

The Perl Programming course provides students with the fundamentals to create functional Perl scripts. The course introduces students to data structures, flow control mechanisms, regular expressions, and subroutines and modules in the form of example scripts and lab scripts. The course concludes with an overview of implementing Perl with regard to Common Gateway Interface (CGI) Programming, Object-Oriented Perl and Perl Debugging. This course however, does not cover the construct of the Perl Programming Language itself or complex Perl functions used for high-level programming. Rather, it focuses mainly on the implementation of the language to create simple and functional Perl scripts.
