Three part longish question to explore the scope of Perl's power.
Since there are so many heavy-hitters here, this, I hope, should get
some very interesting info.
- What is the largest system|code|site you have
(>=90% of the work was your own) supported|created|inherited which
was primarily in Perl?
- What are the main strategies|techniques|modules|brands-of-coffee that
allowed you to pull it off (how about a bulleted list)?
- What was the single biggest mistake (most costly to your own time) you
made while doing it?
Addition: Excellent stuff so far! Keep it coming. I'll see about doing a précis of the replies when the thread has died down.
