in reply to The Enlightened Perl Iron Man Competition

You know, there have been language evangelists from the days of old (1980s, at least, surely), people who just knew that, oh, Apple Basic was going to change the world. That nonsense is very hard to read.

But in the only competition that matters, Perl is winning and has been winning for years. When I ask what scripting language most companies are asking for in the market (Our local Unix user's group brings in a head hunter once a year to help us assess the market), the people that are looking for workers say "Perl".

    Has this headhunter ever mentioned where these companies are looking for it? I'm not currently in the market for any new projects myself, but, in five years of freelancing, I've seen easily 10-20 PHP projects for every Perl project I've run across.
