New Area

on Apr 28, 2000 at 21:57 UTC ( #9614=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was thinking that we could also include an area title something like "Perl Saved My Behind" or some such where we can post stories about how Perl has saved us in a pinch for some specialized situation. I have used Perl twice in the past two weeks in situations that I don't think anyone else would necessarily need, but it may help them think about a problem that they themselves are having....

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    That sounds like a good fit for Cool Uses for Perl. It's not getting a lot of traffic otherwise. :)

[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, grep doesn't have an option to go recursively through a directory as far as I know.
[Your Mother]: I work remotely and my pay and benefits are quite nice. :P
[choroba]: Lady_Aleena Perl's grep is not related to directories
[Your Mother]: It does recurse.
[Lady_Aleena]: choroba, I know.
[Your Mother]: -R, -r, --recursive
[1nickt]: Discipulus, Corion, try this: D.A. Golden's blog
[Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, that's the command line grep, not perl's grep.
[Your Mother]: …how on Earth could Perl’s grep recurse?
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm not looking to get rich. I'm looking for interesting work, with good continuity of employment, and maintenance of our current lifestyle. (An improvement wouldn't be bad, either, but that's not a requirement ;) )
