A little history and the inspiration for this poem. In 2002 we used Perl to develop a poetry site. Wow! 12 years of stable site availability with very little downtime.
In the past 12 years, this Perl based site has served over 100,000 poets – all possible because of the great work of the Perl programming community.
A Poem about Perl
Perl enables the creation of programs that are beautiful
We know that Perl's features are most powerful and suitable
Blessing the normal programmer with mind-blowing expression
We are so grateful Larry Wall chose the computing profession
Thank you for over a decade of help from the Perl Monks’ ranks
Please accept our most sincere, heartfelt thanks!
