I've been perusing the web to find help.
My main reason for wanting to learn PERL is based on
my assumption that this is a good, general, powerful UNIX
I repeatedly wish I had the know how to streamline activities in UNIX
My current contract involves lots of Oracle / Solaris work.
I want to be able to search through huge log files for specific results and
I'd also like to be able to launch sql acripts in "fire and forget" mode so I
can go get the train and then pick up results at home.
I find myself in Solaris environments often. I assume this will persist now that Oracle owns SUN.
I'm assuming that PERL is the best tool.
I could use a much better handle on shell scripting as well, but I wanted to
get the best return on my time.

The other parsing route, shell scripts with awk and/or sed requires a much steeper learning curve in my experience and dont really get you much compared to perl unless your log files are really massive. I really only use shell scripting for things like cron tasks or tasks that start/stop things or do backups. For tasks that require actual programming perl is what you want.
