This course is all about Perl programming language. This is a beginner level course, where you will learn Perl programming from scratch. As you proceed to the later sections of the course, you will learn some of the advanced concepts in Perl. Although Perl is considered an old programming language, but it has some of the best Text processing capabilities compared to other languages. Perl is a newer language when compared to C, but people do consider C as a foundational language that gives you far lesser option on Text Processing and Server side development. Nobody in the world uses C for writing backend server side scripts, but Perl has been very popular in this category since long time. In most recent time, Perl is again getting attention by the developer communities.
This course is divided into multiple sections. 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, and more 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, on either STDIN, or external file.
