in reply to Perl Editor for Windows

These yung'uns today have it easy.

Why, in my day, we had to write Perl scripts with COPY CON. And we didn't have no namby-pamby interpreter. No, we had to hand translate the source onto punch tape and feed it manually though the 15-1/2" morse code telegraph drive at 78RPM.

EDLIN, now there was an editor. A lean, mean, coding machine.

      When I were a lad we were still looking for someone who could build a difference engine! Ah, those were the days! Computers with cogs and still running faster than anything abused by win2k ;)
