in reply to perl's long term place in bioinformatics?

Besides the genome sequencing thru text processing usefullness.... remember the easy Database access it also gives you.There is alot more than crunching numbers going on in research.... you have to be able to store/retreive and display data easily. Perl is the best comprimise I've found as a general purpose glue language.
