1) Biggest program here is 2k lines, used to accurately push script changes
between the dev/test/prod environments, factoring in release/wave/database
environment. Actually broken down into a bunch of components.

2) The equivalent Korn shell application was approaching 8k lines. Speed is
about the same though.

3) Can't use it in production, since our sysadmins don't consider it a
"real" language.

4) Task automation for testing team that doesn't understand UNIX.

5) No GUI's used.

6) vi

7) First choice for scripting, serious choice for apps but a lack of
co-workers who know it prevent it from really being used.

8) At Borders looking for a book to buy. Found the pickaxe book and thought
that it looked neat.
