no less can I say; require strict, close attention while you ... write haiku

I started using Perl in January 2000 as a lowly intern doing software testing. At first I loathed Perl because it was difficult to understand and so unrestrained compared to C. Eventually I realized that only poor Perl code is difficult to understand, and that the difference from C was freedom, expressiveness, and the ability to get the job done.

Today I use Perl for the exact purpose it was created: automating those tedious five-minute tasks that wear on your patience and nickel-and-dime the day away. Occasionally I get to automate that tedious two-week task. Perl is the language for telling the computer how to do the things a computer is good at, leaving the interesting stuff for us humans.
