in reply to Comparison between Perl and Ksh

Perl has all of the following going for it over ksh.

  1. It is a real programming launguage, you can write complete console, GUI, Web-based, heck any kind of software application in perl.
  2. Portable to Linux/Unix and Win32 and many others OS's
  3. Object Oriented capabilities
  4. Shells launguages generally just call other programs, perl can do this as well, and does this in a very flexible way.
  5. Support Modules for all three-letter buzzwords, XML, SQL, DDE, OLE, CGI, FTP, this may impress the boss, they all LOVE acronyms
  6. oh heck go ahead and use Shell; in your perl programs.
  7. all of this will go over your bosses head, so just focus on Buzzwords
