Well arm yourself with knowledge (the perlmonks can help, especially if you choose XML::Twig and ask mirod ;D).

It's easy to fight the PTHBs(pointy haired bosses) if you got the right ammo.

It is your duty as the developer/programmer, to get that ammo and shoot it up their wazoo, until they give in (see article referenced in Article on how to be a programmer, same sentiment).


MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

    That's my aim with this post - to gain some ammo and ideas - as well as to gauge public opinion of their policy *smiles*.

    XML::Twig looks interesting - I'll certainly take a look at that.

    Thanks for the comments - they've given me a lot to think about.
