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.
Environment variables in Perl / use Env

If I say use Env;, Perl loads in a module which allows me to access all my environment variables directly within my code, by name. If I add an explicit list of variable names as a list to the module, then only those variables will be imported. So in this example, $PATH prints nothing but $SHELL and $PWD tell you the shell and the present working directory. Extra environment variables can be accessed directly from the %ENV hash (and that can be done whether or not you have called the module in).

# Env brings environment into current namespace
use Env qw(SHELL PWD);
 
print "--- $PATH ---\n";
print "--- $SHELL ---\n";
print "--- $PWD ---\n";
 
print "--- $ENV{PATH} ---\n";
