Yarn & Perl
Tale of Woe and Redemption
What's new around here?
|Why Perl? What Perl? Perl is a fairly universal scripting language these days. It is freely available for most platforms including all the platforms that Yarn is available for, namely: DOS, Win95/NT, and OS/2. Therefore these scripts should work universally if you have Perl installed. (Warning: Perl can be very frustrating for newbies!)|

|Alas, a tragedy unfolds. We must make the best though, must we? Who knows what is best, when the standards are all emblazoned in gaud. Alas, alas. Once upon a time there was a superior landscape, with fine built in scripting. My heart breaks as I must now move into the land of Crashingness. What can we do? We can sigh. We can write Perl Scripts.|
I've been converting my REXX scripts to PERL. As much as it irks (and even depresses) me, I have had to switch my OS from belovèd OS/2 to despisèd Win95, for various reasons. So, weighing my options and trying to make the best of a bad situation, I've decided Perl is the best way to go for scripting. Flexible, cross-platform, etc... So lets start a PERL/YARN archive! Okay?
