in thread How much PERL useful ?

Why do you like using Perl? There are the advantages. Me, personally, I don't feel like I need to be concentrating on syntax all of the time. Also, I don't feel like I have to worry about all of the details all of the time. That means to me that I can get right to the heart of the problem without worrying about everything else... which makes me work faster.
Agreed there. I'm currently embarking on a Python project. Just another "right tool for the job" project. I've used python before, it's not a bad language, I just don't feel comfortable with all the rules. When I write code in perl I don't think about those rules, I just write the code. I prefer perl over almost any language I've used in the past, doesn't mean I get to use it all the time though. When another language makes more sense for the job, I switch gears. I figure I can always look forward to my next perl project. :)
