in reply to I want you to convince me to learn Perl

You've already convinced yourself to learn Perl over Python, and you need us to validate your choice (I do this with my wife all the time). Consider it done.

Perl is well-suited for "general work around my system". perlintro shows you how to do about 90% of everything you need to get started.

    Thats interesting!

    May I ask how you are usually validating your wife?

    Any benchmark suite you recommend?

    Did her maintainability change over time and does she scale well in multiuser context?

    PS: childish grin ... xD

      Rolf, you are one sick puppy. No wonder you love Perl as much as so many of the rest of us do. :)

      On time, cheap, compliant with final specs. Pick two.
