Overview

Perl is one of the easiest-to-learn (and use) programming languages - yet it is as powerful as the harder-to-learn languages. Perl is optimized for scanning text files, extracting information, and printing reports on that information. Perl is also a good language for many system requirement tasks. And, what's the language of choice for writing CGI scripts to use on your Web site? Perl -- and in particular Perl 5, the latest version of this portable, multi-platform language. Perl 5 For Dummies shows you how to use Perl to create neat programs and powerful CGI scripts -- even if you have minimal programming experience. Plus, on the book's accompanying bonus CD-ROM, you get tons of ready-to-use Perl programs that you can adapt and use on your own.
