I use Perl at work for
The official "scripting" tool at work is the Korn shell. Perl is "not approved" by our Tech Ops group's standards, mostly due to its perceived lack of paid support. I still manage to use it for all kinds of CGI/Web interfaces to databases and document assembler-type pages. I am also starting to use more it in place of ksh scripts in my day-to-day activities, mostly thanks to the knowledge I have gained from reading all the Seekers of Perl Wisdom and Q&A pages here in the Monastery. Thanks again to all for the help, encouragement, and generally fun atmosphere!
