in reply to How long have you been using Perl?

The first language that I learned was C (like many programmers )and I hated it. Started working and going to school for network engineering and fell in love with Linux. Well every flavor of linux that I know of comes with perl. And that is when I discoverd the power of perl. Perl is a great language for network management and the such. Will never program with any other language on any other OS other than PERL and LINUX.

    I've been tattoed to Perl since it was offered as a special problems course in college 4yrs ago (I'm glad I took it, nice vacation from c++). The book used was to "teach yourself Perl in 21 days".

    Since then I have most of the Perl stable.

    learning Perl
    programming Perl
    learning Perl on win32 systems
    Perl for system administration
    mastering Perl expressions
    Perl cookbook
    network programming with Perl
    data munging with Perl
    win32 Perl scripting

    Thanks, Larry, Damian, Tom, Randal, and all the others.

    Good luck with those non-trivial perl modules. Perl and C go quite well hand in hand, thanks to XS, and well, of course you have to wonder what Perl might have been written in....
