The Cincinnati GNU/Linux Users Group, in conjunction with the University of Cincinnati, will host Larry Wall, designer and original author of the Perl programming language, for an event entitled "An Evening with Larry Wall". The event will be held at the University of Cincinnati's Engineering Research Building (ERC) Auditorium, Room 427, at 8 p.m. on January 22. This event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
Larry Wall will speak about his extensive work on open source and free software, and in particular, the Perl programming language. Perl is a powerful programming language used by system administrators and software developers for sophisticated text manipulation, system management, and database interfacing. In 1999, The Perl Journal estimated that there are approximately one million Perl programmers worldwide.
