Perl (2003)

Perl - 2003 - Alice Wood & Dan Richter
The course will roughly follow the Learning Perl book, and I will refer to
that where appropriate in the mails I send. The first few lessons are planned
as:

1) Getting started
2) Scalar data and chomp
3) Control structures including if and while
4) Arrays: foreach
5) Arrays: reverse and sort

Given the amount of material we have to cover this may extend.
