Solutia Inc. recently used Perl to automate the relocation and reconfiguration of a thousand Windows 95 and NT PCs. This automation effort is estimated to have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars out of an approximately $3 million project. This case study will provide an overview of this automation effort, describing its growth from a set of basic scripts into a suite of advanced tools that use OLE Automation, Win32 API calls, XSUBs, etc., to accomplish a variety of tasks.
