Just a mechanical engineer that uses perl for data parsing rather than excel whenever possible. I am nearly exclusivly a windows user.

My code is rarely used in a speed critical manner so I generally opt for ease of coding over speed of run time. This means that I don't generally fear dependency heavy modules or modules with big footprints. (Moose and DateTime are examples)

My work expertise largely falls in product warranty and manufacturing. My perl work areas of interest are dirty data input management, data output, and organization and reporting of the data. I also dabble of necessity and poorly into supervised text parsing / data mining of call and repair tech information. While I continue to visit the monastery absorbing random inspiration any directed brilliant pointers in this area are welcome.
