Text + Processing = Perl

The Search for the XML Oriented Programming Language.

The Search for the XML Oriented Programming Language. …  So I predict that 2003 will be the year we all experience the search for the true meaning of “XML oriented programming”!… [TheArchitect.co.uk – Jorgen Thelin’s weblog]

[James Strachan’s Radio Weblog]

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, now that I am reasonably comfortable with it, any time I find myself in need of text processing, I reach for Perl.

I am planning to try and hit Python soon, so I may well start slagging Perl and proclaiming Python as the ultimate language. I do this fairly regularly. Whatever the thing I am currently excited about is, I tend to rave over. Only to drop it like last year’s action figure as soon as I find a new shiny toy to play with.
