Introduction to Perl
This 2 day class will introduce the student to the Perl programming language.
Upon completion of this class, the student will be able to write useful Perl programs to automate operating
system tasks and perform sophisticated text manipulation. Students will also have a brief introduction to Perl's
GUI capabilities through Perl/Tk.
The format of the class is mixed lecture/lab, with lab exercises immediately following each major topic. The lab exercises are intended to reinforce the preceding lecture topic(s), and are designed to be directly applicable in an EDA context.
A good portion of class time will be spent applying principles learned in lecture to hands-on labs.
Students will need to have a working knowledge of UNIX operating system. Also, basic programming experience in C or UNIX shells is highly recommended.
