in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

I started playing sysadmin on a sun/sgi/pc network in 86, and found right away that I liked using perl to do the dirty work for me. I built more and more front ends to ugly existing programs (and quite a few ugly C programs I wrote) for the poor users. And it was great. I remember the revelation of the PC versions of Perl, and how I wouldn't have to write any crummy batch scripts anymore either!
