Catalog Description:
Untitled document
An introduction to PERL (Program Extraction Report Language) which is used to create common gateway interface (CGI) scripts for use in Internet web sites.  Emphasis will be placed on theory as it relates to practice. Students will create original Perl scripts and download existing scripts from the Internet, which they will revise. Lab emphasis will be placed on incorporating the Perl scripts into an existing web site.  

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of CS 10A ( or CS 10 or CIS 10 or CIS 10A or CIS 10 or BDP 10) and Course Completion of CS 50.11B ( or CIS 58.51B or CIS 84.42B)


Recommended Preparation:
Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100
