in reply to How to answer "Perl is not secure" objections?

I know this probably isn't the sort of answer you're looking for, but maybe it would be best to ask Manager^3, in a way that makes him feel like you're complimenting his intelligence and tech savvy, that you've never heard of this and would greatly appreciate it if he could either point you to the resource he heard about Perl's "insecurity" from, or demonstrate with an example of his own.

The first step in debunking most myths is figuring out who told them first.

    I agree about discovering the source of the myth but I disagree with your approach. It would be much better to have his managers ask the question -- they will be much more familiar with Manager^3 and doing it that way avoids going over anyone's head.

    See, I don't get to talk to Manager^3. I only get to hear the objections (filtered through others) and provide documentation to refute them.

      A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
