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.
