Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language) is our language of choice for this class. Our first program will return a WEB page.

Perl's an interpreted language - you don't have to compile it. It's strengths are it's ability to act as a scripting language, it's ability to work as a glue between other programs, and it's one of the lingua francas of the WEB. Here's our program, which we'll discuss in class.
