For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Pure Perl

#!/usr/bin/perl -n
s/\<.*?>//g;
@fol = split;
if (/06:44/) {
  @op = @fol[1..$#fol -1];
  print "@op\n";
  }


I still enjoy - REALLY enjoy - filtering data and grabbing stats out of it. And what better than Perl - the Practical Extraction and Reporting Language. See example above.

* Read in a file line by line
* Delete out all HTML tags
* Find all references to the 06:44 train
* Output certain data about the running of the train from each reference

And that formed the basis of a charming little report shown here.

Want to learn Perl? We have a Perl Course running from 20th August 2007 ... and it's repeated every couple of months if you come to this thread in September or October.
