in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

But it's been about 5 years or so. Not that I have been all that productive with it. I need ideas on stuff to do with Perl.

    need ideas on stuff to do with Perl.

    Write a full-featured operating system and GUI and suite of applications entirely in Perl -- something complete enough to replace Linux and Gnome. I'll help you beta test it for free. HTH.HAND

    ;$;=sub{$/};@;=map{my($a,$b)=($_,$;);$;=sub{$a.$b->()}} split//,".rekcah lreP rehtona tsuJ";$\=$;[-1]->();print
      I think that I'll pass on that and go about doing some EXIF tag parsing.
