in reply to Comparison between Perl and Ksh

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

Here are some more URLs for your boss to ponder:

The Basic Perl course that Sun Microsystems Inc. teaches
The Advanced Perl Programming Course that Sun teaches

Yes indeed Sun Microsystems makes money off of Perl the same way that O'Reilly and Associates and several other well known consultancies do (quality of instruction?). They also sell an "Operating Environment" that comes complete with Perl pre-installed. To assert that Sun does not support Perl is equivalent to asserting that Sun does not support C, C++, or Fortran. They do in fact support all of those programming languages (as well as ksh and another one that is quite highly hyped).

[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
