in thread JARTUP (Just Another Reason to Use Perl)

Ok, I admit it, I use perl incessantly, and I love every second of it, but lets be perfectly honest, there is a right tool for every job. If I'm doing list processing, a LISP variant is probably the right tool. Logical analysis, better look at prolog if I want to get the job done quick. Writing to the processor? Writing an OS? Better look at C and ASM. Lets not forget that Larry Wall and the Porters write perl, and love perl, certainly as much as anyone else around here, and they write it in C. What am I saying??? Right tool, right job... Perl is a GREAT tool, it's the programmer's all purpose chainsaw! I doubt that Quake IV will be written in perl, however.
