This is like at least the 4th post from you on the demise of Perl I've read tonight. I think everyone gets it and I'm sure we're all scrambling to update our CVs to show that Perl was just a foolish dalliance we never took too seriously.

I've been contacted unsolicited, out of the blue, 4 times this year by recruiters trying to get me to apply for Perl jobs as well as asked back to three offices where I previously did Perl work. The very meager Perl pages and code samples I maintain have seen a doubling in traffic in the last year. Maybe someday Perl will be as dead as COBOL and then I'll be able to ask for $150K and work in any city I choose because I'll be one of the last ones standing who can work with all the Perl code that will survive another 30 years.

Perl may be dying in your world, but in mine it's reliable, *fun*, work with a big salary at any one of a couple dozen offices; in addition to running 11 websites I built with it in the last year.

So, fine. Perl's all but dead. Keep it to yourself or get a monk name so the down votes will paint you as the pointless, redundant troll you are.
