in reply to I use Perl at work for
I am trying to use Perl at work.
At work we just finished rolling out Unicenter TNG on Win32.
Through the rollout we used DOS scripts to automate what we could but of course beyond simple stuff or extensive gyrations we now need something more advanced.
Enter Perl and my impassioned plea to management for the use of Perl. Unfortunately my direct manager (who's mind is set in a '70s mainframe management mentality) just can't get his head around Perl and can't see why DOS (which he doesn't understand either) can't do all we need.
Anyways, I hang around here and try to learn Perl while testing on my home network hoping that my manager will take early retirement and we can get on with the business at hand.
A big thank you to the monks -- learning Perl is much easier with them
