in reply to Ruby Before Perl? Nah.

This is, I think, a reflection of the relative maturity of Perl to Ruby. With a decades long head-start, Perl...

To clarify, Perl was released 1987, Ruby 1995. 8 years does not decades, or even decade, make. To a large degree, Perl's maturity is an outgrowth of its incredibly broad usefulness. It fits into so many problem spaces that its user base brought a tacit maturity almost from the beginning.

    3 months in human years = 1 year in computer years?

    Or alternatively, by decades I meant cumulative hours of development time?

    No, just had the date wrong. Thank you for the correction :)
