in reply to I first became interested in Perl because...

Missing option: ... it is more useful more places

Not quite like Astroboy. Rather the application I was replacing "used to be on a Unix system, has to run now on Windows NT, and who knows what they'll want to move to in the future." I looked around with the question in mind "What's portable enough and powerful enough that I can actually get this done?" Learn, churn, done.

So Perl was not an accidental choice. And moving the apps around has been easy enough that mgmt never clued into how clueless they were. (I guess that makes me a success ...)
