I joined PerlMonks 20 years ago and never looked back. At that time I used Perl for the care and feeding of one of the largest relational databases in the Department of Defense, but because it was within the Intelligence Community there was little I could say about it. The use of Perl earned me the nickname "Mr. Magic", but the magic was in Perl, not in me. I took my signature line from an article in Datamation magazine in the 1980's, but it was over a decade later that I found the language that allowed me to get a lot done without working hard. Perl.

It's been a great ride, but it's not over, not by a long shot. I have since retired from $work and now use Perl for projects at home. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your generosity with your time and talent.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
