in reply to What got you interested in Perl?

Back around 95 or so I started writing a lot of CGI in C just for fun and, a while later, professionally. I had a library that I would use called libwww. Every time I install a new machine and update CPAN I think about that. Anyway, I got introduced to Python while working for a major online healthcare company and learned that since our entire site was written in it. Then along came Perl. It seemed a lot like C which endeared me to it immediately. Then the fact that it wasn't C endeared me even more. =)
