in reply to poll ideas quest 2013

Backstory

The entire basis for this poll is contained in node Roll Call - How new is your Perl?

The basic question is: how old is the perl you're working with (i.e.- at your $job). And by extension, do you get to use Modern::Perl at $work?

Prologue

You can generally choose whatever version of Perl you want to use at $home. It's not an issue. You have choice. On the other hand, at $work things are often much more restrictive.

Poll: Modern::Perl at $work

  • I get to use Modern::Perl features (and like it)
  • I have to use Modern::Perl features (and hate it)
  • I can't use newer Perl features at all, but I would If I could. I'm stuck at 5.8.8 or below.
  • I'm happy to just use regular Perl features dating back to the turn of the century, tried, true, and all I need.
  • Are you kidding? Everything I do is a one-file-hack because I'm not allowed to use anything but core modules anyway and upgrading is totally out of the question.
  • What is Modern::Perl?
  • I think everyone should be using Lisp, and never shut up about it.

    Hard to answer, when I have the modernests perl versions installed, but NEVER ever use Modern::Perl (on purpose). use 5.16.2; + use warnings; is more than enough for me. (FWIW I have 134 versions of perl installed on my laptop, I do not want to install Modern::Perl on them :)

    I'm happy to just use regular Perl features dating back to the turn of the century, tried, true, and all I need. but then i and my collegues are doing pretty simple stuff with Perl.
