Brand spanking new to PERL!

I have been in the networking side of the house for almost 9 years now, and have just taken a job in downtown Houston, TX. After not using a single language (other than CiscoIOS, which is a language unto itself!) since my FORTRAN days, I have been asked to learn PERL as fast as I can and my currrent list of projects to code are:

Completed and submitted for public-use!! A new syslog daemon for our PIX firewalls to talk to that will parse the incoming information based on severity and e-mail/page/ignore based on keywords, and log accordingly

an SNMP crawler to monitor traps on our switches for port bps statistics, and aggregate them into a sum total for the network for a consistent and highly available congestion report - Nothing but grief thus far!

[LanX]: where do you live?
[LanX]: YAPC Asia was renamed and you'd need to speak Japanese to be able to follow
[robby_dobby]: LanX: Misery :P
[robby_dobby]: Or India
LanX which means I can finally organize YAPC Asia in Sharm el Sheikh ;-)
[robby_dobby]: I attended a couple conferences (both in India). Left me with a renewed enthusiasm to do more, only to see it disappear in a few days!
[LanX]: Then come to YAPC EU in Amsterdam ...
[robby_dobby]: LanX: But that's in Africa! More like YAPC::Africa
choroba fears Amsterdam might fill him with enthusiasm to do nothing
[robby_dobby]: Uff, too expensive :-(
