Perl 3: Advanced Perl
In this course, you will learn about Slices, Global Matching, Grep, Map, and Heterogeneous Data Structures.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of Perl slices.
- Obtain useful information about files and the operating system.
- Manage and manipulate data using grep and map.
- Perform sleight-of-hand with references, hash references, and hashes of hashes.
- Structure and optimize data.
- Develop full-fledged Perl programs that employ exception-handling, multidimensional arrays, and regular expressions.
- Implement Perl one-liners using command-line options.
- Solve the Eight Queens Problem.
Throughout your Perl education, 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 will 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.
