Recently there was a discussion in the Monastery about the confusion between 'Perl' and 'PERL' and how we could enlighten the rest of the world. This led me to contemplate the meaning of the Acronym Perl
There are the two traditional expansions
Pathologically Eclectic Rubish Lister
Practical Extraction and Report Language
But there are also:
Pink Elephants Reel Liquorishly
Papal Encyclicals Read Liturgically
Peter Eats Red Licorice
Pretty Extreme Racing Line
Purple Eggplant, Rather Large
Polka-dotted Emus, Running Loose
Perfume Enhances Romantic Liasons
The mind boggles. (And a boggled mind is not good for much)
