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.
Sending awkward characters by email in Perl

Carrying on from the email work I described in a recent article, I wrote an example today in Perl where I used the mailx program to send an email, piping to it in a system call via an echo.

For a one-liner, without special characters in the text, this is easy ... but to get echo to pass through all characters including the " delimiter and new lines took a bit more effort - but we did manage in the end with an absurdly easy looking piece of code - see here. There's an extended example, with the emial being routed to different addressed depending on its content, here.

Final - and off topic - example for today. Formatting in Perl with (s)printf. Did you know you can use "b" for binary? Example - and more formatted printing - here
