In recent years, scripting languages such as Perl have become an essential component of a software developer's tool kit. Because Perl is an interpreted language with many high level features, it facilitates rapid prototyping, permits complex system administration tasks to be performed with ease, and is highly portable across systems and platforms. Perl is not too difficult to pick up because it incorporates many familiar features found in C, shell, sed, and awk. However, it always helps to be exposed to the highlights before one attempts to master the details. In this presentation, Brian will introduce the essential features of Perl to those who are already familiar with traditional programming languages.
