It rained for most of the night, too, which was nice, and should help, a little, with the drought, though the farmers are all saying it's going to take a week of rain before it'll make any difference to them.
I get to discover a new language today. TCL! Woohoo. It's interpretive, and it really reminds me of the way-back days when I used to work with FORTH or even further back when I did basic as a kid by typing stuff in and then running it and having to reboot the machine when I did something wrong. My ex-boss had this argument that it's better for everyone to use one language for all their jobs, and I am now willing to say horsepucky. It's like saying it's better to use assembler, FORTRAN, COBAL, C, C++, or Perl for *all* your programming needs just so you only have to learn one language... they all do certain jobs better.
Though there will always be a programmer somewhere that swears by one and only one language. Like folks that swear by one and only one editor. Hee.
Religious debates. The Generalist against the Specialist.
I'll stay a generalist, I guess, and get TCL under my utility belt as well and I'll probably still write my utility as a set of Perl scripts and use a TCL coverplate that will do what it does best, i.e call other scripts on an interactive basis from user input.
