One of Perl's most useful and powerful features is its comprehensive set of built-in data structures. This course explores Perl's core data types in detail, focussing on the combination and nesting of references, arrays, and hashes to create essential programming tools such as queues, stacks, tuples, records, sets, single- and bi-directional mappings, tables, and trees.
1 day seminar
Novice Perl programmers who have used Perl arrays and hashes in simple applications, and who want extend their understanding to more sophisticated and useful data structures. No prior experience with Perl references is necessary.
