- Perl was not taught in colleges because it is dying, and colleges are aimed to produce people who can at least easily find a job. Don't make this sounds like a fault of those colleges. It is really a fault of Perl.
- When CGI was the buzz word, Perl was buzz word compliant, and no Perl programmer complained about buzz word, actually they probably liked buzz word more than anyone else. Even today, CPAN is a buzz word Perl programmers waging quite often, when it is highly questionable whether a centralized code repository really provides much unreplacable benefit. Java doesn't have CPAN, but Java has google. C# doesn't have CPAN, but c# has google. You can easily find everything just googling or yahooing.
