The Perl Programming course provides students with the fundamentals to create functional Perl scripts. The course introduces students to data structures, flow control mechanisms, regular expressions, and subroutines and modules in the form of example scripts and lab scripts. The course concludes with an overview of implementing Perl with regard to Common Gateway Interface (CGI) Programming, Object-Oriented Perl and Perl Debugging. This course however, does not cover the construct of the Perl Programming Language itself or complex Perl functions used for high-level programming. Rather, it focuses mainly on the implementation of the language to create simple and functional Perl scripts.
