Welcome to this mini-series of video tutorials where we take a look at the Linux Scripting favourite, PERL. The Practical Extracting and Reporting Language. Mainly we will look at PERL on Linux but this can be run on UNIX, MAC OS X and Windows Systems. This a great choice, as a scripting language, for many newbies as it is powerful, but also can be very simple with correct options.
