       I apologise if you receive this message more than once
	due to cross posting in several mailing lists


After Sukot a FREE course in Perl will start in Haifa university.
Following is a short description of the course and some details.


	To expose the audience to the Perl programming language
	and its capabilities.

	For example, researchers can use it for rapid prototyping
	and development, which are useful if you want to show something
	works without spending weeks on it.


	Advanced undergraduate students of the Computer Science department
	M.A. students of the Computer Science department
	Faculty and Staff
	If we still have room, anyone with some background using some programming
	languages (for example, C) can take the course.


	The first 3-4 lessons will be about very basic stuff,
	practically, learning the language from scratch.
	These 3-4 lessons will take place in the same week 
	(see below exactly when).

	The following lectures will be about more focused issues
	such as (tentative program - some lectures might span over
	more than one meeting, and the items of the list are listed 
	with no particular order):

		Hard code Regular expressions in Perl
		Debugging in Perl
		Advanced data structures in Perl
