I agree with these parts ...
- shell script (bash, ksh, c)
For almost anything in a unix/linux system shell scripts with some sed/ awk sprinkled in work well.
To me that mixture is somewhat more maintainable than perl/python etc but sure it depends on the knowledge base or lack thereof at the site. Use some c when necessary for performance or low level stuff ( but I have not written anything in c in a real long time ).
I miss my old PL1 compiler a little that thing had everything including the kitchen sink included. Received on Sun Apr 15 2012 - 16:17:40 CDT
