in reply to Roll Call - How new is your Perl?
At work I have Perl 5.14.2 installed (DWIM Perl) and at home, its either Ubuntu 12.04 having same Perl Version as above or on Windows 7 I have Strawberry Perl 5.16.2.
Good thing is, there are some applications on our company servers that have ActivePerl 5.8.8, but DWIM Perl installs in a seperate directory, so its awesome!!
Unfortunately, Perl isn't an absolute must for my work, but I keep trying to learn it to automate stuff. Knowing some way to automate stuff I think will take me somewhere. Besides, it's fun :)
