This module discusses reading and writing to files and communicating with other programs using Perl Pipes.
Some of the subjects you will learn about in this module include:
How streams work
Using file streams
Using pipes to communicate with other programs
Sending email from Perl
In the process, you will build and experiment with the second part of our class project, the email program.
When you are finished with this module you will understand how to use streams and pipes well enough to write your own programs using these techniques.
