Re: A little different...

Where I work, we are, for real, using a BASIC program (BBC BASIC on Matrix Brandy for Linux) for processing DHCP logs.

It was originally a bash script, but when that only processed 30% of a 70GB log overnight, it was rewritten in BASIC and a few other implementations, and the BASIC program did the entire thing in 4 minutes flat.
