in reply to I use Perl at work for

My favorite at-work use of Perl is the script that runs every night on my NT box to connect to our Exchange Server via Outlook. The script pulls down a snapshot of my Inbox, processes it, and pumps data into Excel to make a bar chart graph of my email backlog. I have a 2000+ message backlog, so there's enough data to see patterns. The graph does show monthly and quarterly patterns. End-of-quarter time is nuts.
