in reply to Impress Women
Perl impresses men, too. I have finally converted my sh/ksh scripting husband into a perl advocate. He was very resistant, probably because he'd spent so many years building up a large repertoire of sh tools, but the speed & power of perl have finally won him over. That, and my merciless taunting.
"Nyah nyah, whose scripts are so slow? Who requires 2 dozen lines of sh where 1 in perl would do?"
