in reply to Easiest city to find Perl work:

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

My previous employer spent well over a year searching for a decent Perl coder in KL, and came up blank. I left about 3 months ago, and as far as I'm aware they are still looking.

    Now that is the problem with Perl (A real Non-technical problem although). Companies don't get Perl programmers like Java guys.
    Can anybody tell us Why so..????

      I'd put it down to two reasons.

      Because Perl has proved so accessible (well done Larry :-) you get more people applying to Perl jobs with low general programming skills. This makes it harder to separate the wheat from the chaff.

      New developers aren't seeing a long term career in Perl 5 so are concentrating on other languages.
