This advanced course takes the Perl programmer through
the facilities provided in the language which make it particularly
suitable for larger projects.
We start off with a quick review of Perl programming fundamentals so
that you can ask any nagging questions you have about the core
elements of Perl. We then move on to look at documentation
standards, tools such as editors, debuggers, and modules such
as the data dumper.
Perl can handle much more than just simple lists and hashes. You'll
learn how, and you'll learn about both structured coding and objects.
By keeping your code in manageable chunks, Perl can be scaled up to
meet larger requirements. "Perl makes the difficult things easy,
and the impossible is made possible" -- Larry Wall, "Father" of Perl,
Perl provides a "glue" to let you interface to many different
technologies. You'll learn about standard modules supplied with
Perl, and those freely available on the CPAN. Some of these
modules, such as the SQL database interface that you can use to
connect to Oracle ... or Access ... or MySQL ... merit their own
chapter, and their own practicals.
Some users have really big and complex data sets to handle, and the
course moves on to cover regular expressions and efficiency issues,
before concluding with discussions on Perl programming standards, such as
how you should write your code to be effective, easy-to-maintain,
and easy-to-modify in the future as your requirements change.
This course covers version 5 of Perl (the current version), with footnotes
where appropriate to tell you about Perl 6. Our plans for
Perl 6 training
are described on a separate page.
