in reply to Perl for admin tasks

I don't know what the big deal about adminstration capabilities is, automation pffshhh is that some kind of cartoon made with cars?

Seriously though, while I guess I do technically use it to automate some things more often than not I'm either using at as the Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister or as a "shell script" on steroids.

Of course it makes a lot more sense for [gs]et.* and crypt to exist in the context of automation and adminstration ;-).
