perl514 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I had tried learning Perl a while ago, but could not continue due to workload/Job pressure.
Trying to learn it again.
I have installed the 64 bit version of Perl 5.14 and plan to create some scripts to automate some tasks, extract information from XML files, do some text processing which will mostly be command line outputs....
I have a few questions and will be thankful if someone could help me.
1) Will Perl Scripts written on 64 Bit Windows run fine on 32 bit Windows as well or is it better to install 32 Bit Version of Perl?
2) If I have to read from/write to huge text files/XML Files/process a very large amount of command line output and format it, how well is Perl suited for that?
3) Perl generally runs on UNIX. Is it good for Windows too?My apologies in advance if my questions appear un intelligent, but just trying to ensure that I have picked up the right tool for the right job.
Kindly help and guide.
