in reply to Applications that can be developed using Perl

I think that just about any application can be delveloped using Perl.

However, if you take into account the strengths of the language AND the strengths of other languages, you may just find that another such as C,C++,or (forgive me) Java that could do it better.

Don't only look at what Perl's strengths are. Look at what other languages have to offer for a particular solution.
