in reply to Any known problems with Perl?

Fortunately, at PerlMonks, we do strive to be open-minded, so I'm going to afford you the benefit of the doubt and assume you aren't trying to stir up a religious debate in our sacred monastery, for $verily, that would be unfortunate. :-)

That being said, I'm afraid your question is far too broad for me to imagine the universe in which the set of possible answers resides, so let me respond with a question instead, to get a better idea of what you're after:

Why are you asking this question? Is it for a school report? A project? Ammunition for (or against) bringing Perl into your workplace? Your personal m-ary tree of possible career paths? (My own is more of a circular doubly linked list with 0 < n < 2 nodes, but I digress.)

Finally, the always faithful Perl Advocacy resources might be of some insight.

Welcome to PerlMonks. We do hope your stay is enlightening.

    What are some of the more FAQs related to troubleshooting errors with Perl?

      In the Perl documentation, see:

      And if you have access to the Camel Book1, see especially:

      • “The Pursuit of Happiness,” Preface, pp. xxiii–xxvii (on the advantages of using Perl)
      • “Common Goofs for Novices,” Chapter 21. Common Practices, pp. 679–691
      • Chapter 22. Portable Perl, pp. 721–730

      Hope that helps,
