Course Prerequisites

To ensure a successful learning experience in the Intermediate Perl course offered by Koenig Solutions, prospective students should have the following minimum prerequisites:

  • A solid understanding of the basics of Perl programming, including syntax, control structures (loops, conditionals), and data types (scalars, arrays, hashes).
  • Familiarity with Perl's basic regular expression capabilities and file I/O operations.
  • Experience with writing and running Perl scripts in a development environment.
  • Basic knowledge of subroutines and how to define and call them within Perl scripts.
  • An understanding of Perl's context (list vs. scalar context) and how it affects operations and functions.
  • Comfortable with using Perl's built-in functions for string and list manipulation.
  • Ability to install and use Perl modules from CPAN if required for the course.

Please note that this course is designed to build upon foundational Perl knowledge; therefore, it is not recommended for absolute beginners. If you're new to Perl, consider starting with an introductory Perl course before attempting this intermediate level.
