Perl in an RFC about LDIF


Perl appears in RFC 2849 - The LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) - Technical Specification

This might be considered some flavour of s*htposting of course, but I had a truly busy day and this caught my attention:

A fairly simple set of tools written in awk or perl can, for example, convert a database of personnel information into an LDIF file.

I’ll not nitpick on Perl over perl and just appreciate how normal it was to talk about it for getting a job done. Which is still the case for me 22 years after, by the way.

Stay safe folks!
