Perl Specialist

 

The Perl Specialist course (formerly titled Perl Fundamentals) focuses on the fundamental concepts of the Perl programming language. In this course, you will learn the basic syntax and control structures needed to write Perl scripts. Topics such as data types, flow control, arrays and hashes, regular expressions, and subroutines will be discussed. You will learn how to interact with text files and how to access command line arguments and environment variables. You will also learn about packages and modules, and you will be introduced to database connectivity using Perl. Finally, you will receive an overview about debugging Perl scripts. Although the knowledge that you gain in this course is designed to widen your understanding of server scripting in general, you will focus on the Perl language in particular.
