in reply to Comparison between Perl and Ksh

Of course, shell scripts spend most of their time running other commands. Commands like echo, awk, and cut are no more a part of ksh than perl is.

So go ahead and use ksh:

#!/bin/ksh /usr/bin/perl -we ' for(1..10) { print "Perl and ksh can work together\n"; }'

At least the manager isn't considering doing things in the shell which Sun helped popularize: csh!

    Uh, not really Sun's fault. It was part of BSD before Sun even existed.
