[plug] Looking for a Web Guru
hooker at iinet.net.au

Murdoch doesn't much like Perl (as is the case with most Universities
that I've heard from) - doesn't enforce good programming practise,
no-one uses it and so on.
I've argued the case against, and I believe that Bill Kenworthy now has
a Perl course (Bill?). Not my doing I hasten to say!
