The author notes "This tutorial provides a problem-oriented introduction to Perl within the context of CGI. The approach is narrative. A problem is introduced and the tutorial then proceeds, step by step, to solve the problem. Perl concepts and features are introduced as they are needed to accomplish each step." This tutorial is divided into seven steps: Perl framework and mechanics; Hello, World; Hello, World, from CGI; Hello, World, from CGI, in HTML; Echo Environment Variables; Echo STDIN Variables; and Perl Library.
