in thread What Perl CAN'T do?

These aren't faults of the language, these are faults of the implementation. There is nothing impossible about writing a compiler for Perl to machine code, or constructing a chip that natively executes (!!) Perl.

Assembly (of all kinds) and Perl are both Turing complete, so anything written in one can be written in the other, theoretically.

[erix]: that's bad... I can only wish you good luck
[Discipulus]: not even in Canada is easy to find a decent job
Discipulus was a question

[Lady_Aleena]: Has anyone here ever use pcregrep? I can't seem to get the --include regex right. --include=*.p[lm] works in grep but not pcregrep.
[erix]: to lift your spirits, here is some more happy Randy news...
[Lady_Aleena]: The reason I would like to use pcregrep is because it can do multiline searches supposedly.
[perldigious]: What are your criteria for looking Tanktalus? What things must a job have for you to consider it? And where are you in your career? Start, middle, or end?
[erix]: are there any regex-engines that do not do multiline?
