The ultimate glue.
I started using perl long ago, when it was best for replacing shellscripts with more than one grep, sed, or awk. And the formatting capabilities! Be still my heart.
Now, in the 3rd millenium, I still love that little glue language, all grown up, with features galore, and a repository of reusable code that demonstrates not only the ease of the language, but also the sense of community that has grown up around it.
What do I do? I write perl.
