A Slide Show is an applet that presents a series of images you can flip through, either forward or backward. In this course, we will be using SlideShows to explain certain aspects of the Perl language.

Course glossary

Many of the terms used in the course are in a glossary. The terms from the glossary can be obtained from the following glossary link.

Quizzes and exercises

At regular intervals throughout the course, you will find exercises and multiple-choice quizzes. These learning checks will allow you to assess what you've learned and, if necessary, what to go back and review. Most of the exercises involve modifying or writing code and then submitting the code to your mentor for grading.
If an exercise involves modifying code, you will be given "starter" code to work with. You can either cut and paste the code directly from the Web page or use the code included in the compressed download file.
