I use Perl at home and at work. In the last ten years
I have written more Perl than anything else.
In terms of the Stages
of a Perl Programmer I would claim I am a Perl Hacker (still).
I finally gave up supporting old Perl 4 scripts in 2005
(not bad for temporary scripts created in 1993).
After nineteen years I am still hoping to one day
understand the whole Perl 5 language
(preferably before it all changes in Perl 6).
I have personally purchased 3 copies of the Camel book.
My first one saw such excessive use from both myself and
others that the spine snapped and the book fell into two
parts (on the page defining the function 'split' of course).
Like many of the other brethren here I am a fan of PTerry
(as can be seen by the name of my
site). I am also a juggler.
