in reply to Is it worth knowing Perl? Real-life examples please

As usual, it depends on your situation. I picked Perl up about twenty years ago to replace awk, and luckily ended up finding some work with Perl almost immediately. I've been employed since then, almost exclusively working in Perl. So, for me, it was a really good decision.
