in reply to Perl and open source

Simple: Java, C, and C++ are more popular than Perl. Most studies I've seen rank Perl fourth in popularity behind those languages. Not a bad showing for Perl, considering Java's huge marketing campaign and the ubiquitousness of C.

[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: those are good rules.
[ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
