in thread When is a script an application

Yep, its all perception. I use to tell my boss 'I wrote a little Perl script that did this or that'. This was a way to brag on Perl, that it only took a little Perl script to get the job done.

Easy to get a reputation as a little script writer that way. I quit writing 'little Perl scripts' about a year ago. I now only write 'Perl programs', some are big, some are little.

    Thanks to everyone here for their responses. I think jeffa and YuckFoo really hit it on the head for me. I'm the one with the problem. I probably downplay my "little scripts" and need to market them better and educate those that don't use Perl. What can't one do in Perl? When will they learn! Many Thanks! ...Kevin
