Also, he is concerned that we are using a technology unsupported by Sun.

Perl is shipped with Solaris 8 (and 7 I think).

Not that it's supported by Sun, but you don't have to phrase it just like that...

Perl is supported by it's huge user base, in a quite excellent way. But you don't have to phrase it just like that :)

    My manager also had a problem with my use of Perl. I came up with a small presentation to show the advantages of perl over the current languages we were using for our tools, KSH and C. That really impressed her. I also made references to the sites I mentioned above to show her the vast support network Perl's users, and authors had created. She was humbly convinced, and very impressed.

    -- Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of defyance.
