Vice Consulting is pleased to announce we are now offering Perl 
training in June and July 2004.  We are offering a 5% discount to 
WLUG users.

Perl is a swiss army knife of scripting languages and essential to 
any Linux system administrator or power user.  Perl makes easy jobs 
easy and hard jobs possible.

It is particularly useful for system administration scripts, data and 
text file manipulation, database work and scientific data 
manipulation to name a few examples.

Perl ships with pretty much every Linux distribution.

We are offering two Perl courses - Perl Primer, an introductory 
course, and Intermediate Perl.  Perl can be used to achieve both 
simple and complex objectives.

Some of the things that can be done with Perl include:

- lowercase all files in a directory
- rename all files from one extension to another
- prompt end-user for input and write it to a file
- perform simple and advanced pattern matching using regular 
- interact with databases using the DBI module
- manipulate incoming email
- massage data
- format and output data easily
- countless other uses

The Perl Primer course introduces the basics, and Intermediate Perl 
builds and expands on Perl Primer.

Our Perl trainer will be giving a short presentation at the next WLUG 
meeting (14 June 2004), to showcase some of the things that can be 
done with Perl and to give the WLUG audience the opportunity to ask 
further questions.
