Perl Accepted For BCS Programming Competition
London.pm would like to thank its members who are volunteering to be judges at the heat that trials Perl as a programming language at the IBM Hursley Site on the 6th March. Unfortunately, no other heat this year will be able to accept Perl entries.
Entrants will be required to be BCS members to compete, but they can join at the same time as they enter the competition. There is also a twenty five pound entry fee per team.
As I know you're all going to ask me this: You'll be using ActiveState Perl 5.6.1 on Windows. You can use Eclipse, gvim, GNU Emacs, Nano or Notepad if you really want. You won't be able to use CPAN (as half the problems probably have stock answers) though if there's a particular facility missing in the Perl distribution that the other languages have that is required for the competition (e.g. XML Parsers) then the judges will pre-install modules before the competition.
