Smith & Nephew a world leading in this market. A considerably
complicated multi-center clinical trial was conducted in 20 hospitals
spread around Israel with control locations in Europe.


This talk is a Walk-thru the evolution of the system from a given
starting point where a single basic system was exist to the point of
completion of the project.

At each point I show that almost every problem was solved with perl
fast and efficient.

There are technical points where I show which techniques has been used and perl code examples.

A lot of various aspects of perl was used and will be presented:
