This is good to know. I'm creating a new credit course

thoughts from
the group on the subject.

Perhaps you may want to lead off with a discussion of what to use
each language for and what can be reused between them. Thinking
that the next language would be starting from scratch I wanted to
try things like GUI programming in BASH. Now I can also see that
regular expressions mostly carry over between languages and that
using the wrong tool for the job is harder then adding another

I'll qualify my last post. Yes, Patrick did start the thread, so I was harsh as "Scripting for Security" was starting a new topic or hijacking Patrick's thread. I apologize to Patrick and I'll stay out of rambling threads. Pity about list etiquette though, it seems mailing lists are used more like irc channels these days.
