in reply to Industry Specific Uses of Perl

Perl is far too flexible a tool to allow a reasonable answer to this question.

I use it to make complex tests of the videoserver equipment that I work with both automated and repeatable. I also use it to generate patches for systems that are in the field. Both of these applications are far removed from web or database applications, but they would be more difficult to do without Perl.
