in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

here is my story :"), i was totaly working on windows (Delphi,ASP and sort of) nearly a couple of months before KDE comes out, I saw one book for linux and started reading it..
during the read i found this beatuful thing called awk and at the third day i had log statistic program (for IIS and ms-proxy), but then later in the book there was a short description of Perl and explanation that it is a bit harder but more powerfull, so I rewrote the program in Perl...
on the third week I had log-statistic program which was able to handle different log formats (configurable), I was proud that it was doing compiltaion on the fly, HoH etc..
From these days it was clear that perl would be my language...

great thanx to Larry and co
