    I read through it this morning (60+ comments on use perl is something to see, after all), and I have to say it's terribly depressing. Even the people who are for certification, or debating certification, or talking about it, or whatever the original impetus was, are only interested because it might increase their salary, and not because certification will guarantee competency. Yeesh.
      because certification will guarantee competency
      Certification cannot guarantee that. It can only gurarantee you know perl sufficiently well, whether that makes you competent to do task X using perl is another issue entirely.
