BIN Computing

The Perl motto is, "There's More Than One Way To Do It". A corollary is, "There is the Slow-and-Easy Way, and the Fast-and-Hard Way". For technical work, BIN Computing favors the Fast-and-Hard Way, because if you're doing it more than once, the fast part more than offsets the hard part.
