in reply to What do you do for living?

I do many text conversion for my language translation department, and Perl is perfect fit for such a job:
  • given text to translate, it quickly performs any words analyzis or whatever
  • given some file format, its easy to manage for FrameMaker, Acrobat, Trados, VIM, or, rarely, MS-Word, to process my files all the way I want.
  • ... and many many other cases, and that is why I invoke perl with a perl script named 'p', so it locates real scripts to invoke in a certain place, showing me GUI interface to fill in parameters, or just running with out any GUI at all, optionally.

In my working place, all is done to invoke perl quickly and comfortably, because it is started hundreds times in a day.

[Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
[Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
