in Perl (aside from an occasional PL/SQL or Korn shell script).

a boatload of Perl apps, I also have had the distinct pleasure of terminating (with
extreme predjudice :), three Active Server applications.
- 1998 - replaced ASP-based supplier/part catalog with Perl
- 1999 - replaced ASP-based expense product config with Perl
- 2001 - replaced ASP-based HR intranet portal with....Perl
condolences to those who had to choose cowboy neal, but the above
scenarios were also coincidentally (like neal) "on a bus to never ever land". ;-)
