G'day folk,

I realise that most of you don't need to attend our training course, 
however if you have a colleague who might be interested, you'd be most 
welcome to pass this information on to them.

All the best,


Perl Training Australia is proud to announce that we'll be running our 
very popular Programming Perl course in Melbourne on the 17th - 21st 

*Book before 5pm, Friday 31st August (and mention Melbourne Perl 
Mongers) to pay only $2975 per person!  That's a $525 (15%) discount per 
person. *All prices are GST inclusive, offer only applies to new 
bookings on this course, this special does not combine with any existing 

Bookings can be made at http://perltraining.com.au/bookings/Melbourne.html

This course covers Perl's fundamentals to give an existing programmer 
sufficient knowledge of Perl to work on most projects.  It assumes 
features from up to Perl 5.16, but includes work-arounds for older 

The first half of this course will introduce the Perl programming 
language, discuss Perl's variable types, functions, operators, 
conditionals and subroutines. Once you grasp Perl's basics, the second 
half will build on that knowledge to cover I/O, complex data structures, 
file system interaction, modules, packages and objects.

You will learn:

  * how to write simple Perl scripts and run them from the command-line;
  * how to use Perl's inbuilt help system, perldoc;
  * how to use warnings and strict to catch common errors and enforce
    good programming style;
  * about Perl's three main data types and how (and when) to use them;
  * about Perl's most common operators and functions;
  * how to use Perl's conditional and looping constructs;
  * how to write and use subroutines;
  * about Perl's powerful regular expression capabilities and how to
    apply them to your problem;
  * how to create, dereference and use references to build complex data
    structures which allow multi-dimensional arrays and hashes.
  * how to write and use Perl modules and packages;
  * how to use Module::Starter to start your modules off on the right foot;
  * how to write tests;
  * how to use Perl objects;
  * how to interact with the file system to read and write files, and
    read directories;
  * how to pass commands to the system for execution and the pitfalls
