in reply to use Perl;

90% of every Perl application has already been written.

Procedure:

  1. Find a process your company has that is inefficient.
  2. Whip up a solution in under 40 hours that saves the company significant resources by streamlining the process.
  3. Do #2 in your spare time.
  4. Demo the solution to upper management, emphasizing the cost/benefit ratio as well as the time-to-market.
  5. Be prepared to be called a liar.
  6. Have a bodyguard for a few days to make sure you don't get jumped by the other developers in the parking lot.
  7. Eventually, upper management will either see the light or you will find a better employer.

    • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)
    • "What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the sound of a wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"
