> Fabled Programmers - the are many
species of programmers that claim
to exist but no one have ever met ...
programmers who go under the
label of 'FORTH', 'OCAML', 'Awk',
'Lisp', 'Eiffel', 'ADA', 'Modula-2'

Hey! I've spent all day writing Awk scripts! Its a great language for text processing and the like (poor for everything else of course but horses for courses). Every sys admin should know Awk (its very simple if you know Perl or C) it simple, lightweight, ported to every unix ever (plus Windows, OS2 etc) and powerfull in its field.

I've also been known to do bits of lisp and forth, ADA and Modula-2 stuff though I leave to the unicorn in the corner...
