  • What's missing? I don't know. I haven't found anything yet that wouldn't install. (In recent versions of Strawberry Perl that is.)

    At work I have a Windows XP laptop. Most of my work is done on a Linux system via ssh. However, it does have Strawberry Perl installed. I have one script that I use often that interacts with MS Outlook. Other than that, I play around with things like Padre.

    A few years back I had lots of scripts that I ran in order to make my job easier. (Generating Excel based reports from a MySQL database, mapping routes for drivers, adding items to a MySQL database via barcode look up, etc)

    At home I run Linux on my PC and the laptop that our kids use daily. My wife's laptop runs Windows. She asked me install one of the scripts that I use daily at home so I guess that it is safe to say that I also use it for extracting URLs from email and opening them in a browser.
