    All at the same time or all some time or another? I admit sometimes perl is a drama (altering perl4 code to deal with Unicode) sometimes it is comics (deciphering Golf), sometimes romance (love at first sight), sometimes documentary (an extract of useful data from a complicated logfile), sometimes infomercial (a graph of Covid19), sometimes a detective (digging for a Heisenbug), sometimes a thriller (will it be done in time) and so on and so on. But it is most often FUN!


    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
