John CallenderISBN: 1565926471; 9781565926479;
Checking links, batch editing HTML files, tracking users, and writing CGI scripts--these common web tasks can be done easily with Perl, the scripting language that runs on almost all computing platforms. Although becoming a Perl expert is hard, most Perl scripts are fairly simple. Perl for Web Site Management is not so much about learning Perl as it is about using Perl scripts to do everyday tasks on your web site, even if you have no programming background. With the help of Perl and other open source tools, you'll be able to write CGI scripts, incorporate search engines, convert multiple text files into HTML, monitor log files, and track users as they navigate your site. Whether you're a developer, a designer, or simply a dabbler on theWeb, this book is the practical, hands-on introduction to Perl you've been waiting for.
