In this talk I will cover the use of Perl for some humanistic (and occasionally, arguably, artistic) pursuits: that is, investigating medieval history and the texts that carry that history. Alongside the sorts of war stories that cropped up in the medieval Near East, I'll share my experiences writing software in a land where development almost always stops with the demo.
