Well you are is a tough spot that is for sure.
I would try and put it to him like this. First of all Solaris
8 ships with perl. As far as it being supported well that just
does not make any sense. If you write a script in Ksh or Perl even if
you have a support contract does he think they are gonna debug
it for you? I can tell you for sure they are not. Sun does however
support it enough to ship it with their OS (finally) Also Randal
makes a great point about a community that will be faster and
more adept at helping you. Sun support covers things like bad
controllers and bent pins on a scsi connector. They are not
in the habit of debugging scripts. Tell him to go to a meeting and
leave the programming to the programmers. = )
