Perl Course Prerequisites
This course is designed for anyone who is already familiar with Perl and wants to understand how to use it specifically for Web-based applications.
You should already be able to program in Perl with basic familiarity using data types such as
associative arrays or hashes.
You should be able to use regular expressions; we will write several programs which will test your skill in pattern matching.
You should also know some basic HTML (HyperText Markup Language) since Perl programs will print to the screen in HTML.
This class will not teach you to program in Perl or to write HTML. The course will help you to sharpen your skills in both Perl and HTML,
and describe ways to apply those tools to Web based CGI programming.
