in thread Where are all the Perl programmers?

More generally, the job is not rewarding enough, through pay, satisfaction, location, etc.

This is all basic micro-economics of supply and demand. If demand for "good" Perl programmers is high and the supply low, "prices" (i.e. rewards) must rise. Alternatively, employers will need to find a substitute, either lower-quality programmers or switching their projects (if they can) to a language with a higher supply of programmers and thus lower costs.

(Which may not prevent them from miscalculating what is really lower cost over the long term -- paying a lot for good Perl programmers or paying very little for crappy programmers in language X. Economics says that people are rational -- but not that they are good at math.)

[kcott]: marioroy, not much to go on. Searching "slow logging" (by me) produces no results; just "slow" gives a screenful. Perhaps, "Searching large files a block at a time" which had a performance aspect and you had some imput also.
[gnosti]: Hi, Looking for a module that can add HH:MM:SS durations like 1:40, 1:00:24.13 and 12.3? I see on CPAN more modules with absolute dates. TIA
[kcott]: s/imput/input/
[Corion]: DateTime::Duration ? Personally,I convert stuff to seconds using Time::Piece or Time::Local and then add the seconds and then use POSIX::strftime to print them as hours again
[marto]: good morning all, TCIF
[gnosti]: I'm reading from ffmpeg lengths of video clips in H:M:S and needing to add them and format them back to H:M:S for feeding back to ffmpeg
[marioroy]: kcott Thanks
[Corion]: gnosti: I would cheat and use my approach instead of dealing with durations as objects, or a module
