buttons), event processing, and frames; 3 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: None Course Descriptions CIS 2280 Perl Programming (2) spring This course continues the student’s training in programming by introducing the use of the scripting language, Perl. Students are introduced to the Linux operating system. The basic concepts of programming are reviewed using Perl to demonstrate those concepts. Concepts unique to Perl, such as regular expression handling and hashes, are introduced. The emphasis in the course is on using Perl as a tool to get things done rather than only as a vehicle to explain how to program. Examples and assignments are drawn from topics related to system administration, web programming, and application programming; 2 hours of lecture per week.
