in reply to Confessional: why I wrote bad Perl code.

Some days you have to do it. Most often I am writing a script that will be used once, five minuets after I was asked to write it, and then thorwn away. Lots of time I have to go with the first idea I have (which usually is not the best) and turn it around. The nice thing about perl, is you can get away with it (I know this is not exclusive to perl, but....).
