in reply to Perceptions of Perl - views from the edge

Quite simply Perl IS my edge.

I would never get a job for my Perl knowledge, nor does the job /career I have give any bonus points for my Perl skills. But come crunch time in analyzing a problem, simplifying a task, or automating a 'glue' solution. No one has it out there faster, more reliably, and more durably than myself. Managers roll their eyes if I point out it was because of Perl. Security still groans when I convince the powers to be to roll out a new version to the servers. But without Perl I'd only be your average operations specialist. With it I stand out when it matters most.

Perl is code for 'Heroes' :)

    ++ I'll second that!

    There are only a couple of perl programmers here in the IT department where I work. (And there are many IT folk here.) With perl's ability to simplify slicing and dicing of data, we're the "go to" guys for many tasks...
