Perl works

[ #5099 ]

Where I work we do an awful lot of stuff in Perl. In fact the basis of our anti-virus solution - a custom anti-virus engine called Skeptic - is entirely written in Perl (well, with some decoding stuff in C). It's so good that we offer a 100% anti-virus guarantee. Now the UK Government have decided to let us scan their email for viruses. Good news indeed, and definitely a win for Perl.

Now I just have to work on the boss to get him to contribute to the Perl Foundation...

    • Thanks for the awesome link! I particularly like the fact that it links to my favorite explanation of the subject: Bob the Angry Flower's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe, You Idiots, which I've been enjoying periodically for about a year now. :) [Sometimes I worry that I have a lot of pent up frustration over little things that I need to vent some day.]
