PERL AND THE WORLD WIDE WEB Class D801-901

The programming language perl has become the tool of choice for programming applications on the World Wide Web. Perl programs (often called scripts) can be of a few lines, or can be thousands of lines. Perl often provides the ~glue~ to allow your Web server to provide what you want, the way you want to provide it.

We’ll install perl on a computer, then start with simple examples. Use perl to build Web pages which you can then put up on your home page or any Web server.

In the afternoon we’ll explore CGI (common Gateway Interface), using perl to provide custom pages in response to a user’s request.

Lecture and demonstration

Prerequisite: Experience using the Web and the Internet, as well as some familiarity with HTML. Familiarity with perl is desirable, but not required.
