perl anyone?
Authored by: SOX on Nov 12, '09 02:52:56PM

Why would anyone want yet another shell syntax? If you need to write anything serious in shell you should be using perl, it's the optimal language for low level scripting. If you are not doing anything too complex, then bash and tcsh are easy enough. Fish has nothing on perl, so what's the point? (and don't say Python. Were talking about shell scripting and perl is basically shell scripting heaven.)
