( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Where I work there are two real Perl fanatics, me and Mike. Well we can use Perl to do almost anything, quicker, faster, better than any other language coders you can name. As an example I last week I wrote a Perl script that did in ~700 secs what was estimated to take 20hrs (by hand because the infidels said it couldn't be scripted).
The problem really is that (seen from the management side) if they take one of my scripts and show it to joe_random_coder he says it is indecipherable (despite the liberal comments and that fact that I can produce a man page and a HTML doc directly from the code) and that is good enough for them. I shouldn't have to feel guilty for his lack of ability!
Keep going with your head down, produce good code - quicker than they can, easier to amend; and one day the penny will drop.
Don't forget that at the moment 95% of the grey suits have only just forgotten the old edit, compile, link, run COBOL methodology. It's going to take them time to accept the new religion - all we can do is to make their path easier
