in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

I started playing sysadmin on a sun/sgi/pc network in 86, and found right away that I liked using perl to do the dirty work for me. I built more and more front ends to ugly existing programs (and quite a few ugly C programs I wrote) for the poor users. And it was great. I remember the revelation of the PC versions of Perl, and how I wouldn't have to write any crummy batch scripts anymore either!

[marioroy]: Yes. I've been working on MCE and MCE::Shared. These are completed and released. MCE 1.830 and MCE::Shared 1.831. Saw the LWP::Simple and P::FM thread and thought to help out.
[marioroy]: Today, wanted to revisit running parallel Re: Crash with ForkManager on Windows. I tried running on Cygwin for comparison.
[marioroy]: Running parallel on Cygwin feels like running on Unix ;-)
[marioroy]: Fortunately, Strawberry Perl v5.26 runs well.
[karlgoethebier]: marioroy: He! Magic Mushrooms was a talk in the CB some days ago ;-)
