Introduction to Perl/CGI: (Second Edition)


With your strong base in HTML, you can create static web pages with no user interactivity. However, when creating enterprise web applications it becomes a necessity to give utmost importance to user interactivity. To create dynamic web pages with high interactivity, you need to write efficient programs that interact with web servers for retrieving or uploading data. It is an oversimplification to say that you can easily create highly interactive web pages with the help of Perl/CGI. With Perl/CGI exploited in this course, you can structure data, manipulate text, communicate with the server, maintain state with cookies, access databases and much more. This course is designed for individuals with some expertise in programming and web communications. This course is also intended for individuals who are looking for a quick entry into Perl for the purpose of code maintenance and understanding.
