in reply to Comparison between Perl and Ksh

Well you are is a tough spot that is for sure. I would try and put it to him like this. First of all Solaris 8 ships with perl. As far as it being supported well that just does not make any sense. If you write a script in Ksh or Perl even if you have a support contract does he think they are gonna debug it for you? I can tell you for sure they are not. Sun does however support it enough to ship it with their OS (finally) Also Randal makes a great point about a community that will be faster and more adept at helping you. Sun support covers things like bad controllers and bent pins on a scsi connector. They are not in the habit of debugging scripts. Tell him to go to a meeting and leave the programming to the programmers. = )
