This is a thank-you report for perl from alex@chezalex.net,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.10.1.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your thank-you message here]
Perl is a language I self-learned to get my first job, and I've been using it for more than 10 years now to patch things up here and there. There's nothing quite like it, thanks for the hard work.
