Using Perl in Forensics

Ever wondered how some folks use Perl in their jobs, particularly when performing computer forensic analysis? I'm always interested to see who folks use Perl particularly because I use it so much.

I ran across a Perl script for extracting Time Zone Information from an image recently from Citadel Systems. Interestingly enough, it uses my own Offline Registry Parser (, which is available on the DVD with my book as well as on my site.

Pretty cool, eh? I think that its nice to get this kind of feedback...that someone found something you wrote to be useful enough to use it or replicate it.
