Question description

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Perl is a different language used by system administrators. Perl can be used to do almost anything that a shell script can do, and it can also simplify other tasks.

  • Describe the benefits of Perl and where it can easily be used.
  • Describe situations where Perl is not the best choice.

Finally, write a simple script that does the following:

  • Prompts for your name
  • Checks if the entered name is the same as your instructor's name
  • If yes, it prints: “Hi Instructor”
  • Otherwise, it prints: “, you must be a student”
