in reply to Convincing co-workers to learn Perl

They seem like smart people.

A smart person is an economically efficient person.

Don't try to convince them to use Perl. Convince them to use The Best Tool for the Job™. Usually, (though not often) it's Perl. :)

Good luck with your evangelical endeavor.

    I have to concur on what John says.

    If there is one thing I learned in the last 35 years, it must be: "never tell people what to do".
    Let them decide for themselves.

    On the other hand, there's absolutely no harm in showing them the "path of enlightenment"...<GRIN>

    Cheers,
