I use Perl at home and at work. In the last ten years I have written more Perl than anything else. In terms of the Stages of a Perl Programmer I would claim I am a Perl Hacker (still).

I finally gave up supporting old Perl 4 s‎crip‎ts in 2005 (not bad for temporary s‎crip‎ts created in 1993). After nineteen years I am still hoping to one day understand the whole Perl 5 language (preferably before it all changes in Perl 6).

I have personally purchased 3 copies of the Camel book. My first one saw such excessive use from both myself and others that the spine snapped and the book fell into two parts (on the page defining the function 'split' of course).

Like many of the other brethren here I am a fan of PTerry (as can be seen by the name of my web site). I am also a juggler.

[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
[Corion]: I would assume that the PE format hasn't changed that much since the days of yore, but it seems that I would be wrong in that assumption
[Marshall]: When I bought my copy 15+ years ago, it was just a couple hundred bucks.
