Cody Pendant has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Can anyone recommend me links or other information sources about Perl as language, in the broader context of languages other than just computer languages?
Larry's piece on Natural Language Principles in Perl would be an example of course.
Perl, for instance, has pronouns: $_ is essentially "it". That kind of thing.
Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
