ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

On 2005-10-14, I cleaned up some ancient cruft. The most interesting thing I found (and fixed) was the following. In the thread of Site How To (which, btw, is no longer an official site doc), some people had posted "root" question nodes as replies. Apparently they didn't know how to go to Seekers of Perl Wisdom and scroll to the bottom. So I yanked those nodes out and made them root nodes in the SoPW section. They were:

A programmer who hasn't been exposed to all four of the imperative,

fry.  Programming is not a skill one develops in five easy lessons.

Interesting thread: Useless unless. The "suggestion that Perl should have an otherwise" came from me. This thread is really about two issues: unless and otherwise. I don't care about the unless bit.
