Has anyone else found that growth of "common practices", "best practices", "policies" to rediculous levels in their jobs?

Uh, no. In the jobs I've had over the years, I've found that most organizations never write a single automated test and engage in rampant cowboy coding. Even in the Java world, where heavy process is not usually seen as a problem, many projects seem to be run in a haphazard way with no real rules and no tests.

I think you're extrapolating too much from one bad experience. Testing and other good practices are still rare in software development jobs (though more common in open source), and anyone trying to change that needs all the encouragement they can get.

    [Cosmic37]: greetings earthlings please can someone improve my pathetic perl knowledge
    [Cosmic37]: I have 2 files each with datetime and other data in unknown order and I want to find rows from both files matching by datetime and output them combined/ concatenated
    [Corion]: Sure
    [Corion]: Do you have any specific interests or general Perl knowledge?
    [Cosmic37]: should I slurp? should I grep? Noble Lords I wish you good karma and beg your advice
    [Corion]: Cosmic37: Ah, see perlfaq4, about How do I compute the intersection of two arrays
    [Cosmic37]: I am out of practice; I use Perl for scientific programming for number crunching
    [Corion]: Cosmic37: Basically, you read one file into a hash, keyed by your key, and then match the lines from the second file to that hash
    [Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
