in reply to Homework and the Monastery

I've never heard of a comp sci curriculum that was based on Perl. I thought they all used either C or Java. Does anyone have first-hand experience with a school that teaches classes with Perl as the language? I'm just curious. It certainly would have made my computer classes more fun.

    My Alma Matta offers a number of 'elective' languages (such as Perl, Java, and Visual Basic - C++ is still the staple there), usually one or two a semester.

    i attended the CGI Programming with Perl during the summer semester of 1998 - thanks Dr. Cheatham!!

    I don' t know about any CS curriculum that is based on Perl, but I know some courses in corpus linguistics are based on Perl.

    I had a class in college called data and file processing. It was split between perl and COBOL.
