I am teaching a intro to programming class for some people who are fairly new to programming. I am doing an overview of lots of languages, some of which I am familiar with, some not. Perl is one I am not really familiar with yet, but one of the students would like to know some information.
I would like to cover the bare essentials of course (which I will learn myself). But I would also like to show some things which may be a bit more complicated, but are _really_ useful about Perl, things I might not learn in a short tutorial about Perl.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
