Don't make me engage in a flame war with you, JavaFan.

Yes, I come to Perlmonks for objective bullet points because it's worked in the past for me (although you always have to filter out people who insist on monologuing). I *can* come up with points of my own, it's just that I like to cast a wider net and get the opinions of others (probably not a skill you are familiar with). Subjective reasons aren't something I bring to management.

One of the things I would like to do is to point out large, commercial websites that are still running Perl. I know that Amazon.com used to run Perl, but I doubt that is the case today.

Which big sites run Perl?

Thanks.

      Yahoo!'s deployment systems are hugely dependent on Perl.

    Ticketmaster too. Amazon still uses Perl extensively; in the early days it was C and Perl and in house stuff, then a *lot* of Java came and a little Ruby in and some Perl went out, and then Perl staged a bit of a come back.
