: I was going to ask you about languages. Your profile suggests you are still mainly PerlLanguage oriented. I won't hear anything said against Perl, but I confess that I've shifted into thinking of Python as my default language for any new project. And now, when I come to maintain an old perl script, I'm likely to re-write it in Python as part of the maintainence process.
