Perl is a powerful interpreted language that takes very little knowledge to get started. It can be used to automate many research tasks with little effort. This includes tasks such as creating input files, parsing output files, manipulating XML data, or generating Excel documents.
This hands-on tutorial will cover some important properties of Perl and give some examples of simple and useful Perl scripts. We will discuss modules, context, regular expressions, special variables, system calls, and references.
