in reply to Not Everyone Likes Perl, I Guess

The big problem is Perl has gotten so identified with CGI. In fact it is used for many different things other than CGI. The last 5 things I did with Perl were:

  1. Convert a romanized representation of Sanskrit text to UTF-8.
  2. Talk to an XML-RPC based web service.
  3. Build a search engine for mail boxes.
  4. Convert documents in a proprietary format into DocBook XML spell checking them along the way.
  5. Write a version of the classic game 'trek'.

Only 3 involved CGI and that will probably move to modperl soon. Yet Perl eq CGI is indelibly locked-in to many peoples minds :(
