in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

I dropped out of college in August, 1995 and went to live with my girlfriend at PSU. I walked into the computer center and said "Anyone need a programmer?" One guy in the AgSci department said "Sure!" and I got handed a login, a chair, and the Llama book. (Built an entire appserver for $7.50/hr.) I bought the Camel on my dime about two weeks later.

Unfortunately, I only used Perl for a year and stopped, until June 2000. Every job since has involved Perl intimately, and I've loved it.

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
