<latemp_subject "Perl for Perl Newbies" />

<p>
<a href="http://perl-begin.org/">Perl</a> is a useful language for working on
Linux and other flavours of UNIX as well as on many other platforms where it
is available. Perl is useful for text processing and generation, GUI
programming, system administration, programming for the Web, working with 
databases, and most other things which are not very time sensitive.
</p>

<p>
The material of these talks (also useful as normal web-based tutorials) aims
to give a good introduction to the basic and most important elements of Perl
programming. Knowledge of another programming language is recommended, but is
not necessary.
