Re: Difference between a perl script & shell script
in thread Difference between a perl script & shell script
Actualy, one of the first "I love perl" moments, for me came when I was moving programs between an SGI and a SunOs machine, back in the time when Perl was at version 4.19 and dinosaurs roamed the earth.
For some reason, the user shell on the SunOS (not in general, just on that particular machine) was mandated to be tcsh, and on the SGI it was bash. Or maybe it was the other way around.
Either way, porting shell scripts was a pain, porting C programs was a pain, but Perl scripts simply copied over. Nifty...
