in reply to How some people live without Perl

It was a humbling moment several years ago when, after writing a script to parse network latency test logs and generate a cute little histogram, my coworker simply copy-and-pasted the data into Excel, generating in no time flat far better graphs and stats than could my code. Perl is great, but it isn't the tool for every task.
