what so wrong about calling perl: PERL
I think perlfaq1 describes this rather clearly. What part of it do you not understand?
that guy must be new in perl and trying to solve his problem instead of learning it.
As far as I know, the focus here is learning, not solving problems. Through learning, one can eventually solve many problems, but acquiring knowledge usually comes before using that knowledge.
do it quickly without spending hours learning it
Asking for help without being willing to learn is imnsho abuse of our services. Those who do not want to learn should hire a programmer. See also http://juerd.nl/perl_needhelp.
