in reply to Argument for Perl ( again and again )

I find myself going to Perl a lot lately. I have to write some sysadmin scripts that must run on anything from old AIX to the latest Linux distribution. Perl is available on all of these platforms. Writing these scripts in Perl so that they will work everywhere is easier than using the shell.

As has been mentioned CPAN cannot be understated. Thousands of hours can be saved by using code from CPAN.
