in reply to Dirtiest Data

What a sweet little thread this has turned out to be. I had thought I was some sort of hot showy hacker when I learned my first few things about sed. And even now I only turn to perl at the point when sed and grep fail me.

But it had not occurred to me all the sorts and levels of data that these tools would be useful for accessing. Never mind being crippled by coming from a country that thinks its people are literate if the only language we know is the colonial tongue imported some five hundred years ago. But that too shall pass. Parsing music with perl? Finding Arabic among Russian in unknown data? That sounds cool.
