in reply to Question of the thing we call "Perl"
Perl is many things to me:
- A faithful friend - Perl is always there when I need something to lean on, or need help with a problem.
- A powerful tool - Few languages (or even, few things of any sort in the world) can compare to Perl's versatility.
- An art - The way you code and the way you share the things you write, these are forms of art, expressions of you and your use of Perl.
- A doorway onto a wonderful community - What other language would have a Monestary filled with monks and demi-gods of scripting? :-)
