Course Description

Perl is a popular and powerful language that can be applied to a wide range of data processing problems.   Students will learn the basic features of Perl and gain experience in writing typical applications that do text processing, Web scraping, financial calculations, data validation, file management, word-frequency analyses, inter-process communication, simple databases, and more.  

The 3.5 day version called Perl Programming, plus Extended Hands-On is designed to provide additional supervised lab-time for the benefit of groups having less programming experience, or a special need to delve more deeply into specific aspects of Perl. This version of the course is offered only in on-site classes.

A popular variation, called Perl Programming, plus Modules (4 days) incorporates the Using Perl Modules course on the fourth day. An expanded version of that course combination, called Perl Programming, plus CGI (4.5 days) spends additional time on the use of the CGI module for web programming.

Who Should Attend

Students should have at least 6 months of prior experience with UNIX, and be experienced with one of the following text editors: vi, emacs, or pico (or another locally available editor, for on-site classes). Students should also have prior programming experience in a modern high-level language (C, AWK, Shell, etc.). The course is intended for UNIX programmers, system administrators, network administrators, data administrators, and webmasters.

Author & Instructor

Dr. Tim Maher has been working with the interpreted languages of UNIX since 1976, and counted AWK as his favorite scripting language until Perl came along and eclipsed it.  He has written many sophisticated applications in AWK, Korn shell, C, C++, and Perl, including a user interface for U.C. Berkeley undergraduates and source code beautifiers for Perl and C++.  He is the CEO and Principal Instructor of CONSULTIX, for whom he has authored and taught 17 courses on a wide variety of software topics. He is also the founder of the Seattle Perl Users Group (SPUG), one of the oldest PUGs on the planet and also the clear leader in attracting world-class Perl experts to its meetings.

CONSULTIX instructors are renowned for their ability to communicate complex concepts in simple terms and to make the study of dry technical material enjoyable.
