I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment Query DHCP server leases from Perl script
This question is probably better on ServerFault since the question is mostly about how to extract the lease information from Windows. It has much less to do with the fact that you want to do it in Perl on a Linux box. In fact, I'd bet you need at least some code on the Windows box to do the extracting.
