in thread Java is the machine that goes "Ping!"

Well Java does not have some of the lower level access to the system that you can get by using perl. (Every try getting a listing of PIDS and open ports to kill a runaway server in Java?) I think this boils down to: "use the right tool for each job". Java is pretty good for doing the Web Application thing (aside from the complexity of EJBs), but I would not want to write system maintance programs in Java.

    That might be a good point, except Perl is rather pretty good for the webapp arena too.. :)

[GotToBTru]: that sounds fair to me
[davies]: I've just "approved" using syscalls in perl through inline c for at least the third time, but it still appears to me as unapproved. Is this just me?
[LanX]: erix: other side of the pond
[LanX]: davies: same problem
[Corion]: It had been approved as a Perl Monks Discussion. It should now be approvable into SoPW
[choroba]: Approved
[LanX]: hmm aproval doesn't stick after move? Or was it a race condition
