What do you count as "using Perl"? My startup is using Perl to flesh out the prototype, though we will be writing our product in C. We almost certainly will be using Perl for a good chunk of the testing tools, though we will probably use other languages, as well. I don't see the point of touting "WE IS A PERL PLACE!" If the shoe fits, use it. If the shoe does not
fit, find a better shoe. Perl tends to fit a lot of places, which is why it's used in a lot of places. In fact, I would be willing to bet that every single Fortune 1000 company uses Perl and has more lines of Perl in active use than all but their most used language. If that's not penetration, I don't know what is.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
