in reply to Perl comes to rescue once again.

Hi,

Thank you for your encouraging words. Yes, indeed, I do feel like I'm "Standing on the shoulders of giants". Especially when I log in here.

Many a threads here at PerlMonks have literally fast forwarded the learning process. Everyone here is genuinely helpful. Without PerlMonks, the learning process would have indeed been tough.

Every once in a while, I come across some really fabuluous Perl stuff that just amazes me. Named Captures, split and join, the smart match operator...and many more such things are really really amazing. Two weeks ago, I discovered what a blessing the $/ is. I used that in my script to seperate out certain sections of a record. Thats just one example of how amazingly useful this language is.

Now. whenever there is some need to do some automation or scripting, I am considered as one of the "scripting guys" and asked if I would like to take a shot at it. Man it feels good.
