I started being interested in Perl, thanks to some good friends of mine, a few years ago (with a time lag...). I've mostly used Perl for "fun stuff", like visiting classical radio schedules on websites and downloading them rapidly for later search, or helping me out with combinatorial math problems, a hobby now that I'm no longer in any math program...
The last few days, I've worked up a few interesting (to me?) Perl scripts, and decided that they might be worth a bit of web availability. I'm putting one up now, and the other later. And more, as I write them (I don't think the ones I wrote before this last weekend should go up, but who knows.)
