in reply to Convincing co-workers to learn Perl

I did this recently, and I made a point of inviting several IT-type groups who could (potentially) be interested. There were representatives from ... five different groups. People from the other four have come to me with scripts that they are writing with help, so that's good. No one in my group has yet, so you might need to look beyond your immediate group.

Admittedly, we are a mid-size company, with about 70 people total. I don't know that this would work with a company that is much smaller, and of course big companies have a completely different dynamic. So you might have to tailor a strategy based on the size and structure of your company.

[Discipulus]: no no seriously, redss posed a good question in the right moment, and you gave as always wonderful answers
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
