About This Course

Learn Perl, a powerful and easy-to-use scripting language used on PCs, servers, and on the Internet for a wide range of programming problems. Perl is as capable - and often as fast - as C, C++, and Java, but is easier to learn and does not require the sort of software development tools and environments required by those languages. Perl is also more portable and supported on a greater variety of computers than many other computing languages. Perl programming skills are especially valuable for Web developers, software developers, and system administrators.

About The Instructor

Nathan Meyers

In over 20 years as a software developer, Nathan Meyers has used Perl extensively for PC and server applications. He has instructed courses in the corporate environment, on introductory Unix and on using programmable financial calculators. He is also the author of the Macmillan book "Java Programming on Linux", numerous conference papers, and articles in trade publications.


Although work often takes away from concentrating more on the lessons, the course presented me with immediately useful information. I intend to keep these lessons as reference material when I continue with Perl programming.
