BIT Extended Education Session Three: Regular Expressions and Perl
CO238, 5.45pm, Thursday 7/10/2004

It's not really a talk. More of a workshop, and an excuse for me to learn MagicPoint. Given to (and therefore, aimed at) 200 level BIT students late in the academic year.
What the BIT students were told:
