I have to agree that PM is addictive, and it is so in many of the same ways that Perl itself is addictive, so if you fall for one, it's easy to fall for another.

PM, like Perl, is concerned with "Doing the Right Thing".
PM, like Perl, trys to figure out what you mean if you aren't clear.
PM, like Perl, is easy to use but with lots of power.
PM, like Perl, has it's saints (or gods) to look up to and learn from, as well as it's eager newbies attempting things for the very first time.
PM, like Perl, is forgiving. And usually it's 'error messages' are rather informative.
PM, like Perl, is just darn fun.

Ok, enough campiness for now, but Pm definitely has a feel that keeps bringing me back, and in it's way is a microcosm for the Perl community entire. Which is full of hoopy froods.
