We will discuss techniques and scripts used to help
administer several networks of HP-UX and Linux machines.
Perl has been used widely by system administrators for many years. This presentation will discuss some perl scripts that are freely available and which have been found to be of use to administrators and software developers on both HP-UX and Linux systems. It will also discuss some techniques that may make it easier to utilize other freely available software.
For example, we will offer a technique you might use to
manage software loaded in your /opt directory as well as
scripts to help automate the technique.

software developers, both also administer HP-UX and Linux
