an O'Reilly employee admitted that O'Reilly is trying to control perl by using the viral GPL
chromatic did no such thing. He said that O'Reilly had donated Perl documentation to the Perl community. Either you didn't read the post, or you don't understand how the GPL works or you are deliberately just spreading FUD.
I propose we add a new section, entitled "PHP", where we can ask the questions on how to change a piece of perl into PHP and talk about building the future this way
Can't really see that being popular round here can you? If you really want to start "phpmonks", then the Everything Engine that powers Perlmonks is open source. Feel free to use it to set up your own community.
