...we can figure out how to use positive marketing in our favor.

Agreed, as far as there's a fair chance of introducing a new programming language (in casu: Perl) in your shop. Then again, there's the kind of shops that (usually for reasons of support/maintenance and programmer profiles) standardize on one/a few specific programming languages. I've worked in a context, where only C# was allowed/supported for app. development, -- but where I could develop parts of the solution 3-5 x as easy (=productively, and... interestingly) in Perl, so... I convinced the PHB, that i needed a "small scripting tool" to supplement C#. He signed my order for Komodo, and I could start programming .... eeeehh "scripting", in Active State Perl. Been doing that since, as it best fits into thecurrent app. context.

Blessed are the meek: For they shall inherit the earth...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
