This workshop lasts 4 hours.
Perl is a general purpose programming language that is popular for working with files, web programming, and systems administration. This workshop is intended for people who have little or no programming experience. It quickly covers basic programming concepts, Perl in a Unix environment, and Perl syntax. It then provides guided exercises involving data structures, flow control, and read-only file access. Participants will build a command line price check program in the course of the workshop.
This workshop works in a Unix environment, but because Perl is available for most all modern operating systems, nearly everything covered in this workshop works equally well in any other operating system.
