in reply to Why Use Perl?

Greetings Great Gremlin-

I turned to Perl for very pragmatic reasons: NT and Solaris compatibility, rich network tools - FTP and sendmail right out of the box, zero cost - no internal budget problem, a lively support community and good documentation.

Upon arrival in Perland - there were more treasures; no memory leaks, good performance, faaaast change cycle, clear syntax, and no &%^*&% proprietary tools needed.
