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.
Hash of lists in Perl

Here's a short program that reads data into a hash of lists, sorts the keys and displays output data - a simple Perl program showing powerful capabilities of the language.


while () {
my ($name,@temporary) = split;
$want{$name} = \@temporary;
}

foreach $person (sort keys %want) {
print $person," ",$want{$person}[0]," ",$#{$want{$person}}+1,"\n";
}
