Perl Scripting Online Training

What is Perl?

The full form of PERL is "Practical Extraction and Report Language".

Perl is a widely known and powerful scripting language used by web programmers to develop CGI scripts for web servers. It is used for a variety of tasks such as creating web pages, to create the equivalent of DOS batch files or C shell scripts. As Perl is especially good at parsing text, programmers often use it for reading and searching through text files. Before sending any type of information to your web browser, Perl scripts are primarily run on the server. The syntax of Perl scripting language is similar to C/C++.
