Moin, I know i'm resurrecting old mails, but... On Wed, 22 Jun 2016 00:17:50 +0900 "Stephen J. Turnbull" <email@example.com> wrote: > But what are your skills?

In the last.. uhm.. 2-3 years, I have heard quite often that Japan is looking for people knowing perl. AFAIK, perl was never a big thing anywhere, was it? Mostly sysadmins using it. I cannot imagine that there is a huge code base in perl that cannot be quickly rewriten to a more popular languages (e.g. python) as all perl code I have seen was usually just a bunch of 100-1000 line scripts. I've never seen anything that was over 1000 loc in perl (ok, not true, I've written such a beast myself). Attila Kinali -- Malek's Law: Any simple idea will be worded in the most complicated way.
