I just made the reflection that in all projects I've done I always found some use for Perl. Although quite a few projects were completely written in Perl I also seem to have grown the tendency to find *some* usage for Perl in other types of projects.
For PalmOS programming, I've written a script to automate the generation of skeleton code. I also use Perl to generate some of the content for my palm apps.
For my embedded development, it was a bit hard at first to find a usage for Perl. But the inevitable happened
Even at my day-job I'm Perling away - if I have the chance - again, using Perl to automate stuff. (for the moment stuff means visualizing test data ).
