State of Perl

Tim Bunce has posted an interesting presentation on Perl 5 and Perl myths.

I have to confess that I have a special affinity for Perl as it was the first ‘scripting’ language I learned, and I have used it extensively over the past 12 years. For example all the index administration code at Feedster was written in Perl, along with lots of parsing and utility libraries, and I always turn to it for all my ‘quick and dirty’ scripts, especially any text processing scripts.
