Subject: Re: SAS and Perl
I'm a SAS programmer who has done a little with perl.
I feel that both have their strengths and weaknesses.
There are things I would do in SAS and others in perl.
I'm reminded of the saying 'To him who only has a
hammer, everthing is a nail'.
Then there is the Dirty Harry line 'A man has got to
know his limitations.'
Perl is a excellent language. I'm glad to have it at
my disposal. I believe that neither SAS nor Perl will
replace the other.
Lets leave the 'My language can beat up your language'
