You can always use the number for, and against perl. I wouldn't bother with either, since you can do just that.

perl and c are two totally different languages in that one is precompiled and perl is "compiled" when "run". One needs an OS as an interpreter, the other runs on an interpreter that runs on the OS. Similar to java, but java is compiled into a byte language that finishes getting compiled on run. But perl is not backed by uber large companies like sun, though c is very old, and c++ was done by a reasearch company. Go on and on and on. Don't forget Church's thesis which one can simply say, it doesn't matter, since they are all relatively equal, and do the same thing, which would almost make the statistics valid, if everything could be linearly comparable like that. :)

The fact that perl has so much to offer, and so many people care and do with it, is all that matters. "A lot of people use it" is all we need, eh?
