in reply to The Perl Hacker Inferiority Complex

I haven't coded Perl for a while now, but I read this and felt obligated to comment. I've coded Perl and found it easy to learn, but sophisticated enough to handle very complex problems. I haven't been keeping up with it primarily because of demands from my programming job, where I'm having to master .Net, but I can honestly say Perl rocks, and will always have a place in my toolbox and on my resume.

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
