No idea, I just play with it occassionaly to get my head round what's
going on, after 5 minutes I realise that if I'd been using perl I'd had
finished by now.  This is not "an experienced programmer developes
faster in their language of choice", but the fact that to do it in jave
takes loads more code!

I was recently asked how to do substition in strings in ASP - thank the
lord for regex'es.
