This course is all about PERL programming language. The course begins with PERL datatypes and operators, moving towards conditionals and loops. You would also learn Pattern Matching with Regular Expressions, and server-side programming with CGI-PERL. You would also learn various debugging options, and deployment of PERL programs, and modules with PERL compiler with various example programs.
We would cover topics such as Scalars, boolean, strings, lists, mathematical operators, assignment operators, conditional operators, loops like while, for, foreach, do while, until, do until, etc with if else conditionals, control structures and Subroutines. Regular expression would be a broad category where various types of expressions in form of query could be generated and provided text operation is performed like searching, inserting, replacing, counting, etc on either STDIN, or external file.
We would learn to create useful CGI-PERL scripts for backend or server-side implementation of any web application or website, where we can retrieve information from html form, write back html pages, write emails, etc.
Various example programs for PERL in all the topics covered and provided with a downloadable zip file, that could be used by students to develop complex PERL applications.
No prerequisites at all. Previous programming experience could be useful, but not completely required!
