in reply to Argument for Perl ( again and again )

It depends on the context and the tribe, I suppose.

I like Perl, don't dislike at all Python, although I agree that can be a little too much friable when copypasted and basically can do "the same" as perl. I'm interested also in sql, and enjoy a salt of Lisp in my diet here and there. I use perl, sql and lisp every day, and growing interest. So you can tell me about "dead" languajes

Works for me.

My interest in learning java is the same as the last years; very low and not growing at all. I can't solve my problems with java, at least currently

My interest in learning PHP is even lower than Java. Much better (for me) to invest more time in C, Perl, Python or Lisp before.

[stevieb]: been thinking... if it wasn't for Perl, I believe that I'd be done in tech. I don't do social media or the like, if I'm not coding I'm not on a device at all, and don't miss comms at all when I'm not around. I code for my job (which I like), but I think..

[stevieb]: I think that Perl is the reason that I haven't gone 100% off grid :)
