Programming Tools -- How Prevalent Are They?

Subject: Programming Tools -- How Prevalent Are They?

I recently saw an employment ad for a Technical Writer in the Boston Globe,
from a compamy that develops Internet courseware. The ad sought candidates
with experience using Visual Basic, Lotus Notes, Perl, and C/C++
programming. Writing ability was not cited as a requisite skill.

This prompts a question: How prevalent is the use of programming tools --
such as Visual Basic, Perl, Java, C/C++ -- among us folks that call
ourselves "technical writers?" Specifically, do many of you folks use tools
such as these on a regular basis, as part of their work?
