Ok, my turn.
PERL is more that sufficient for enterprise-class computing. The only people (that I've encountered, no offence implied) that disagree are "Enterprise-class" software salesmen, I mean salespeople.
I have a suite of FTP applications, writen in PERL whenever I was allowed to use PERL, that handle upwards of 1 million files, 1 billion megs of data, each year. Guess what parts break. The parts that are NOT PERL.
My question is: has anyone come up with an effective way of getting MORE PERL in their enterprise. When I mention PERL my resident Java programmer starts writhing in pain and my managers eyes glaze over.
