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.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

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