Hi Guys,

I have been using Perl for only 5 days and I'm blown away by what I
can do:  I'm monitoring an Oracle db (directly), an Informix db (via
ODBC) and several log files over a WAN.

May I voice one criticism?  All the doc I have found (mainly on is written with references to Unix and C (e.g.
discussion of Switch).  This is preaching to the converted.  I have
spent most of 30+ years in an IBM & MS environment - it's guys like
me you should write for.

Having got that out of the way - thanks again for an excelent tool.
I'm having fun!
