in reply to Perl Vs Ruby

But yet I have a feel that Perl is more powerful

And faster, and more widely distributed, and required in more jobs, and better supported, and with a drastically larger base of quality, 3rd party code, groups, and communities, and more flexible, and...

That said, I know a few strong hackers who have drifted from Perl to focus on Ruby. I won't be one of them though. :) If current events matter, I start a new gig with Perl in two weeks, finish a high paying telecommute one this week, and have been contacted by recruiters, unsolicited, seven or eight times this year for Perl jobs (and I consider myself junior in Perl chops to *many* of the monks here; stick around, I owe a good slice of the dev chops I do have to this place).
