No one tool can do it all

Well, Perl can! :-) Especially with the appropriate modules, plus it's pretty portable. (With what kind of tasks did you have portability problems with Perl?)

You did post on a Perl website after all, so of course everyone says, why not do it all in Perl? ;-)

    You are exactly right! Should have known better than to put PERL in a second-class context. Ouch! It wasn't my intent to make defacto statement, merely present an example to others asking how. I am a big fan of PERL and use it as primary scripting choice. Just hope the examples are taken as just that... examples. Though I sure it will touch a nerve somewhere.
