    Perl is inappopriate for some applications, where precision and efficiency
    are important.

    Of course, perl -ple is super-glorious for those frequent situations where
    precision and efficiency don't matter so much.

    • On the contrary, perl -pe is excellent for applications where you want precision and efficiency, particularly that derived from improvement over manual editing. :-)
