    I have used other languages in the past (Pascal, Modula, some C++, Fortran, Cobol,...etc) they were all powerful and did get the jobs that I was trying to do actually done. However since I've began to learn Perl and started using instead of all the above, I really began to feel that I can do anything, no other langue gave me this kind feeling...

    Yes, anything and everything I can do with Perl, there were no barriers, no tasks that are difficult to do and all impossible tasks were all possible (the Perl Creed is true), whether itís a Windows NT admin task, GUI, OLE, desktop application, reports generation, database access, sound and music related, the list is absolutely endless. Basically, What I am trying to say is that knowing Perl stopped me from thinking "What tool or language shall I use for this problem" to simple "Which Perl library that I need". And thatís that.
