Are you sure?  I wasn't at all stubborn in giving up Perl. <wink>

But as to tunnel vision, I guess you're right.  When I discovered Perl,
I entered the tunnel of the value of powerful scripting languages for
most everyday programming chores.  Then, when I ran onto Python (which
one might very loosely describe as "Perl, without all that 'Perl'
stuff"), I became even more tunnelized in that.

p.s.  In case you haven't noticed, this "ly y'rs" schtick is an yet
another good reason to switch. <wink>
p.p.s.  If you ever decide to drop Perl completely, in favor of Python,
please don't convince Tom Christiansen to do the same. <wink>
