in thread Performance Trap - Opening/Closing Files Inside a Loop
I left out the office politics. This isn't about Java versus Perl in the workplace though it very much might be for this one developer. Read my reply here for more information. While it isn't my job to write code (at least not on a day to day basis), I do try and help out the contractors when I can. In this particular case, my help was only wanted if the problem was insignificant.
