The uses for perl are vast and deep. There are uses for perl today that didn't exist in the past. And of course, some other technologies have stepped in and are in use as well. All of this got me to thinking.
We have a diverse group of monks here. So what is everyone using Perl for? ETL? Dynamic web pages? Scientific problem processing?
Here is your opportunity to share. Who knows? By sharing, you might shed some light on a task that someone didn't know could be done in Perl.
I guess I'll start: I use perl for ETL processing mostly. Reading record files into or out of databases and doing general transformations. I also use perl for command line higgery-jiggery. I also use perl for my process control scripts and logging.
There. I shared. How about you?
