The Basic Requirements of Perl
Tuesday June 12th at 7:00pm
College of DuPage Building K Room 161
Review and expand on:
Array & hash data access
References for building nested data structures
Handling arrays of hashes or hashes of arrays
These can be useful for dealing with HTML
generation or database return results.
They're also the basis for most of the
structures used in OO perl (e.g., a hash of
hashes for storing private data accessed by
a key handed back to the caller).
Steven Lembark began working with Perl in
1991 at EDS, practically extracting data from
various places and reporting on it to his
boss. Since then he has used it for parallel
process control, cron replacements and
beating Oracle 8.0.5 into submission. Steven
currently works for Knightsbridge Solutions,
a consulting company dealing with scalable
computing and "big data". Most of his
current Perl work has been for process and
system management, with a dose of mod_perl
thrown in for good luck.
The next general meeting of UniForum Chicago will be from 7:00 pm to
