in reply to How has Perl helped you?

I have a career and a company because of Perl.

I became a felon using Perl. {grin}

I've been able to help hundreds (thousands? tens of thousands?) of people to have jobs, careers, and felonies with Perl.

I've met some of the most interesting people in the world, thanks to being interesting enough for others that I get invited to cool places.

I've been on 27 week-long cruises, thanks to Perl.

I can walk into any medium-sized bookstore in the country (world?) and find my name on a shelf. My name has been in print as a by-line over 20 million times. Thanks to Perl.

I have you all as my friends and associates. Thanks to Perl.

    Perl got me a free O'Reilly T-shirt and a free Template Toolkit book when I setup and joined the O'Reilly User Group Program.


    No seriously, Perl brought me into the Perl community, and I really love that.
