in reply to Next Language to Learn

Wow! You know everything about Perl? Moose? Catalyst? XS?

Then again, I guess you mean "What is a the next language to learn after Perl 5", to which the obvious answer is "Perl 6".

Here is what over 40 years of programming has taught me:
1. You will never know everything
2. Be selective - choose your path
3. Products have the lifespan of a mayfly
4. Stuff you learn today will appear to be obsolete tomorrow
5. Stuff you learn today will be useful the day after tomorrow
6. Don't believe bozos who try to give you advice based on their own failed careers.

[hippo]: Other package managers are available
LanX wouldn't update system Perl!
[Discipulus]: prathap keerthipati might be it is better to install an alternative Perl instead and do not touch the system one
[LanX]: see perlbrew for alternative Perl installations
[marto]: unless you know exactly what you're doing an often saner option is to simply build another Perl rather than replace the system one
