in reply to Whatever happened to the cool homework questions?

  1. Perl isn't being taught in as many high-schools and universities anymore (and definately not near the introductory level). In my opinion this is a good thing, it does not make for a good introductory language.
  2. Many of the questions previously "determined" to be homework simply were not. Someone asks an interesting question, they get flamed, nobody answers their question, they leave. Is that so hard to understand?
  3. Perl is dying (heh, just kidding ;).

    The internet with it, if your statement would be true. Without Perl, the internet would be dull and dead and rotting. Many many systems work thanks to Perl.

    It's alive!!!
