in reply to What got you interested in Perl?

I picked up the Camel and the Llama long before I actually started learning Perl. Figured they'd come in handy (my original plan was to put together a scripted website, just like "everyone else") someday. That "someday" happened to be near the end of a machine learning project, when I had to massage the outputs of three different gene-finding programs into something similar. That was about eight months ago.

    Before Perl, i only knew BASIC and VB. When I started webdesigning, i got significantly angry because there were all these programs out there (message boards, voting booths, form processors, etc) that i couldn't quite customize to my own tastes. I can't actually believe i started creating my own scripts, but that's what it's come to. It's been about 1.5 years now, and i think i have a firm grasp on the language. I'm not advanced yet, still have a long way to go. But i love the language and its style.
