Perl

Perl is a powerful object-oriented scripting language used extensively with UNIX, Linux, Windows and the Internet. In this course, you learn to write reusable scripts with Perl. Through intensive exercises, you learn to use Perl in your operating system and application environments as well as apply built-in functions of the language and make use of external modules.

The course will get you grips with basic concepts of Perl such as scalar data, arrays and lists, hashes, subroutines, etc. The course gives you hands-on experience to help you design Perl applications, automated applications, and complex text analyzer applications.This course includes Perl training that focuses on fundamental concepts of the Perl programming language. Perl scripting training is intended for individuals who want to understand how to fully use the features of the Perl programming language in Web application development, database interaction and system administration. These specialized Web language skills such as writing CGI scripts can help you build a career in Web development and technologies.
