The unit explains to students what Perl is and what applications it has in programming, especially what it is good for and what it is not good for. The unit will cover the basics of the language such as syntax and programming constructs, to enable the students to program proficiently in the language. Programming techniques necessary for developing applications will be taught, including text pattern-matching and other tools unique to Perl. Students will be encouraged to use Perl-specific idioms that they will encounter in real-world Perl programs. Additionally there is an introduction to the Common Gateway Interface standard, used in interactive World Wide Web pages.
