in thread Perl for big projects

/(English|German|.+?) language/... Terry Pratchet wrote in one of his books something like (translated back from german) "it's rather impossible to express yourself properly in a language that has its roots in insulting the monkey at the next tree". So I think Perl is a rather big advance into the right direction ;-)

BTW: I don't want to insult the /.+? language/ or anybody who's using it (maybe except myself); it just sometimes seems very difficult to understand what somebody wants to say (especially if this person is a SAP consultant...)

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
