Perl Course Requirements
Working with perl
Throughout this course, you will find many small programs and snippets of Perl code that you need to run and experiment with in order to understand the course text.
To do that, you will need run
perl on your computer.
Getting and Installing Perl
If your system does not already have
Perl installed, the next several lessons in this module will walk you through getting and installing
perl on your machine.
perl program runs on many different systems, but it runs best on the Unix-like family of operating systems
(for example, Linux, BSD, HPUX, Solaris 9.0, SunOS 5.2, AIX , and so on).
If you do not have access to a Unix-like system, there are ports of
perl available for other systems, including 32-bit Windows (WindowsXP and NT) and Mac OS.
There are no required books for this course.
However, you will find a list of several titles offering additional information that may be of benefit throughout the course.
