This workbook is an additional set of exercises to supplement those already in Learning
Perl, Sixth Edition. The chapter and page references apply only to that edition. Additionally,
unless I denote otherwise, Learning Perl without qualification means the sixth
edition. That book already contains some exercises, and I try to cover the topics those
I’ve been teaching Perl since 1998, and my beginner classes use Learning Perl as the
course text. Along the way, I’ve posed a lot of additional problems to students so they
could test their understanding of the topics I covered and some of the additional information
I added in the lecture. In doing this, I pose two sorts of problems: one of
simple knowledge where knowing the right fact or trick makes the problem easy, and
the other somewhat clever where a Perl implementation of a particular technique solves
the problem. I’ve tried to include both of those sorts of problems in this book.
You should find some exercises are easy, some require that you find nuggets of information
you may have missed on a first reading of Learning Perl, and others require you
know something about algorithms or programming that aren’t simply a question of
Perl knowledge and might require you to do some research on your own. As you learn
about how to learn about Perl, whether through its documentation or online resources,
I pose these challenging problems expecting that you’ll use everything available to you.
There’s a lot more to programming than just the syntax.
