Yes there are awk guys out there. I get awk code and have to deal with it from 2 people who will remain anonymous. Their awk code is good awk code. I write Perl stuff that "stitches their awk together" and we get a good result (meaning application that works).

As far as "Perl experts" go, some folks are considerably better at Perl than others. I remain skeptical that a well coded Perl app would be of lower performance than an awk app. I will add that fewer lines of Perl doesn't necessarily mean higher performance. I will also add that the three of us have an app and process that works and we don't see any need to optimize the performance. I would argue before taking on an "optimizing" mission, a relevant questions is: does anybody care and does it matter? The main thing is: does it work?

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.
