Non-golf fun
Message ID:

In an attempt to stimulate non-golf threads:

.. Has anybody done any really interesting Perl "hacks" that they are
proud of?

.. Does anyone have stories of replacing huge C/C++/Python etc programs
with a Perl one-liner?

.. Has Perl ever saved anyone's job? Their life?

.. Has anyone ever persuaded their boss to let them "prototype" a large
(C/C++...) job with Perl, and then just used the "prototype"?

.. Has anyone ever got themselves into serious poo by using Perl when
they should have used something else?
