If I buy some meat what I do care about is whether the butcher uses modern meat, or tries to sell me some meat that's been hanging around his shop for 20 years.

    Perl is more than 20 years old.

    Maybe you find yourself a newer language.

      Perl 5.14 is only eight months old. I've eaten meat older than that for sure. (Many salamis are aged at least that long.)

      Besides which, I wasn't planning on eating Perl.

        Yeah, pearls are hard on the teeth.
