I worked with a group of people that has never encountered Unix/Xenix. We working on for a nameless goverment agency on a undiscribable project running on Xenix on Altos 586. Towards the end, I asked the "senior designer" his opinion of Xenix. He said, "Interesting. It doesn't get between me and the problem I am trying to solve."


The same is true for Perl, and in most cases, "It makes the impossible possible." L. Wall
