Perl 2: Intermediate Perl
In this course, you will learn filehandlers, expressions, parsing, flags, and operators.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Create practical programs that interact with the user and the operating system.
- Perform useful and important tasks without even writing programs, by calling Perl from the command line with brief “one-liners.”
- Match and change text using the powerful technology of regular expressions.
- Enhance software quality with a larger repertoire of Perl operators, functions, and looping constructs.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Perl-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Perl Programming Certificate Series.
Prerequisites: Perl 1: Introduction to Perl, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the beginning or intermediate programmer.
