in reply to What is the major Perl successful story ?

  • It has been speculated that nearly every corporation has a few linux boxes running some important internal task that is written in Perl.
  • I'd speculate that nearly all non-newbie sysadmins have some task automated with a bit of perl in the mix.
  • At one time it was claimed that perl was the glue that held the internet together - I think that's still largely true today
  • Without perl in your toolbox, I think it's analogous to not having a pair of slip jaw pliers; yeah, you CAN get by with out them, but they're really handy to have.
