in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

Let's see, I was taking a Unix tools class at the university in 1993. I hated LISP, C/C++ was such a pain and TCL/Tk was only ok. Then, on a Thursday, the TA said: "OK, now let's look at Perl..." and we all got these pink books, with this funny camel on it.

Ever since, I've used perl for everything under the sun, from assorted network monitoring, CGIs (before CGI.pm), assorted ISP/IT stuff, ad hoc scripts and too much XML stuff to go into...

Thanks Larry! Thanks Tom! Thanks Jon!

You guys have helped me more than you know!

[Corion]: marto: Great! The German Perl Workshop was a success even though things looked dire before, and I'm now back at home with two days off work still to go ;)
[Corion]: I hope things have settled down a bit for you and the boys are alright?!
