<subject "Perl for Perl Newbies - Lecture Series" />

<p>
<a href="http://www.perl.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 (including the Palm Pilot ;-)). 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 lectures 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.
</p>
