Revered Monks and dwellers of this venerated place,
I've been here for approximately two months now and I have no words to express my gratitude. The level of information shared here is amazing. The knowledge of the monks just blows my mind. Answers given here are of very high quality and I've come to realize that PerlMonks is the best place to learn Perl
Just wanted to take a moment to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to all you knowledgeable and helpful folks here. Spending a few minutes here is far more enriching and fulfilling. The suggestions and advice given by you Monks has literally shaved off hours of time. I started with Perl due to its practicality and immediacy with which it naturally lends itself to real life problem solving, but now, I have started falling in love with this amazing language, all thanks to you folks.
This language deserves so much more attention and respect than it gets. All this talk of "Perl is Dead" now simply makes me wonder what the hell is going wrong with folks. This language will never die, because 1) its a pragmatic, practical and amazing language and 2)PerlMonks.
