Is Perl a good career move?
Perl isn't a career, it's a programming language. By itsef it's nothing. I've never seen a job listing simply for "Perl". It's just a tool to help you in whatever career path you choose.

Plenty of people are making money using Perl in their jobs, businesses, and careers.

As far as I know, Larry's career isn't Perl - it's that of a language designer. Randal's career isn't Perl - it's as a consultant and author.

It's like how some people think that McDonalds is in the Hamburger business - they aren't. They are in the franchising and Real Estate business, they just use Hamburgers and French Frys are their agent to their business.

Think of Perl as your Hamburger and side of Frys -- Not as your business or career.
