in reply to Perl How Many

With regards to the number of Perl Monks out there, you might find Monk Stats very interesting.

With regards to "Perl user", that very much depends on the definition. I've been led to understand that even Windows has a Perl executor somwhere under the hood to do some installation stuff. That would make it a lot of Perl users out there.

On the other end of the spectrum would of course be people who make a living programming in Perl on a daily basis. Personally, I would think there are at least 10's of thousands out there. But that's just a guess, based on the amount of books published about Perl and estimating what the break even point of a published book is.

    And for every registered Monk there is at The Monatstary there are probably three Perl programmers that aren't registered.

    I didn't kow about Perl Monks until 2001 and I've been programming in perl since around 1990 (or earlier)

    Thanks to sifmole I finally found it and I've been encouraging other Perl programmers to come here.

      That sounds like a a huge underestimation to me.
