and maintainer of:
A simple, extensible tool that allows powerful transformations on text files
It sounded awfully familiar, not that Perl is the only text manipulating tool around, but still.
Here is my subjective translation of what it can do (in same order as above):
So if you look at the second point, it is a collection of all of the above aimed at a specific product. I am sort of amazed by what IBM can do in the year of 2008, I do not know about you, but things seem to have gone downhill or are they just re-releasing old stuff to the new generations of CTOs and CEOs? If course it comes with buzzword compliance and all sorts of IBM dependencies and integration. I think I will stick with Perl as my 'Simple Text Transformation Tool'
