[Kc] Using Perl

Using Perl for sysadmin tasks was how I got started too.

Did you read the article about SysInternals and Winternals being  
bought by Microsoft?  Download their source code while you can ;)

If you don't mind constructive criticism, consider posting your  
script to the list. There's nothing that delurks list subscribers  
better than posting code that they feel they could have done  
better ;)  And you get the added benefit of seeing the different ways  
people might approach solving the same problem.

We used to do a variant of Perl Golf (http://www.xs4all.nl/~thospel/ 
golf/rules.html)... where those who decided to participate could aim  
for either the shortest script (standard golf) or the fastest script.
