    The Perl Programming course is a comprehensive course that explains the Perl programming language, from basic through advanced syntax. The course shows you how to use the Perl programming language to write quick yet powerful scripts and provides an overview of Common GatewayInterface(CGI) Programming, Object-Oriented Perl and Perl Debugging.

    The Perl Programming course provides students with the fundamentals to create functional Perl scripts. The courseintroduces students to data structures, flow control mechanisms, regular expressions, and subroutines and modulesin the form of example scripts and lab scripts. The course concludes with an overview of implementing Perl withregard 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 Perlfunctions used for high-level programming. Rather, it focuses mainly on the implementation of the language tocreate simple and functional Perl scripts.
