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? :-)

    This is one of the best answers I've seen to my question. This man truly has broden his horizions with Perl and knows the real definition. Perl is an art to all of us. We sculpt is into what we want to have. Since "There's more than one way to do it"... all of the codes are different. Not one code is the same (virtually the same, there probably are scripts that match exactly, but u get the point). Not going in order but, Perl is a faithful friend. It will never leave you for anyone or anything. Perl can lead you to greatness in the Perl community. Perl is powerful because of its capabilities. It is one of the best langauges I ever came across. It is a community as I have said before and so has Saint Larry Wall. Segfault is going to go along way in Perl and at Perlmonks. I wish you well Segfault.

    One person can change the corse of history. One person can destroy the human race. That one person is out there, I intend to find him.
