Embarking on a Perl journey
A long time ago, in a job far, far away, I had to deal with some Perl. I learned just enough to get me by for the duration of the task at hand, and then pretty much forgot everything I had learned. Now, at my latest job, I'm having to deal extensively with legacy systems which have a considerable amount of logic written in Perl that needs to be either ported over to other languages (for various reasons) or updated and new things written because Perl is the only language that's both abstract enough and not too processor intensive to run on the embedded systems we deal with. Therefore, you're going to start seeing a lot more Perl posts on this blog.
