in reply to Why I learn a language.

I learned perl so I could help the Green Party of Minnesota with its electoral goals. This first started as a basic CGI web application for use in a city council campaign and is now expanding into something that will be used by the entire state and later other state parties. (heh, maybe even the nation and world >:-)

I see this as my contribution to the world via electoral activism.

You can see my first attempts at perl here (v0.03). A few months later and some time to learn, here (v0.40a), something much more advanced here (halted dev). The current development version isn't available anywhere but uses Alzabo+CGI::Application+HTML::Template+CGI (for form widget building).

[Tanktalus]: My basic problem right now is that if I were willing to move, I could be back in Toronto with a pay raise. We have a number of reasons for not wanting to do that.
[marioroy]: I had to backslash the backslash inside qx.
[Tanktalus]: marioroy++ # nice catch
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, that makes kinda makes sense.
[Discipulus]: yes i can survive also in younger town.. but when i passed i saw many strange letters..
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, sorry, I am not making sense right now.
