About the course.

In this tutorial, brian d foy will cover aspects of his latest book, Mastering Perl, which is practical advice for working programmers on creating professional, enterprise-quality Perl programs. He will cover four major topics:

  • benchmarking and the theory of measurement to show you not only how to measure something but understand and interpret the results
  • configuring a Perl program so users can affect its behavior with changing the source, including environment variables, command-line switches, and configuration files
  • recording the operation of a program through logging to show errors, report progress, and record
  • debugging, patching, and modifying existing module code without changing the original source

Target audience: intermediate through advanced Perl programmers.

About the instructor.

brian d foy is the co-author of Learning Perl and Intermediate Perl, the author of Mastering Perl, the publisher of The Perl Review, the author of dozens of Perl modules, and a Perl trainer and consultant for Stonehenge Consulting Services, Inc.
