..the guy who's work I took over had written a VHDL simulator control script in Perl.
I thought I'd just tweak it a bit to add a feature - after all one line shouldn't matter
Then it was just one more file - this was Perl 4
Soon I was writing C-parsers and using modules. Then Perl 5 came along and I was hooked. Massive bodies of production code, arcane one liners and training graduates
It got to the point that the first thing I'd do at a new site was convince the IT dept. to let me install Perl on whatever machine I touched.
Please help me find a 12-step program before I submit a bug-fix (shudder).
