I completely agree with mirod :). I think some of us forget Perl's function as a glue language. If we keep redirecting other monks to solve their problems with other languages, such as XSLT, and I've even seen PHP, then we are slowly abandoning Perl, and even the Perl motto, "there is more than one way to do it." Instead of redirecting XSLT questions and saying the only way is XSLT, we should be looking into how can I find other ways to do it with Perl, as mirod says. This is what attracted me, and most likely other perl programmers, to this wonderful language.
