Fall In Love With Perl

Fall in Love - Perl Programming

Like other Programming Languages : Python, Ruby, etc.. "Perl" is yet another interesting High Level Programming Language which has the power to do wonders in varieties of Operating Systems used. Primarily "Perl" found its popularity in UNIX like systems because it helped the System Administrators to create automated scripts which reduced their repetitive works . Gradually it has grown into a robust language and made itself one of the favourites by web-developers and programmers worldwide. Perl is also popular for CGI Programming,it is very easy to learn, and due to its portability ,a perl script would execute and produce same output in varieties of OS.

Okay.. so lets have fun..

System Architecture on where I will be writing..

[gray@ckserver Perl Programming]$ uname -a
Linux ckserver.computerkorner.org 2.6.32-431.23.3.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jul 31
17:20:51 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[gray@ckserver Perl Programming]$

Lets check if we have perl in our box, and in most of times, we will obviously have this language installed if its a UNIX like system, as many scripts depends on Perl running in this particular OS(UNIX like systems)

[gray@ckserver Perl Programming]$ rpm -q perl
[gray@ckserver Perl Programming]$

We do have perl installed, in case you dont have, you can install it in this way..
