On the other hand there may be those who actually want the best solution to a problem (or maybe need it and just don't realize). I would imagine there are few here who would disagree that Perl is a powerful and expressive language with application in a wide range of problem domains, however there are going to be times when writing a Perl program, however cool and elegant, is not the best solution given the statement of the problem. This of course is not isolated to questions which may elicit the response 'use XSLT'.

I'm not sure mirod was saying "how can I find other ways to do it with Perl" I think it was more like "give me an example that shows this is better than doing it with Perl" with which I heartlily concurr.
