P5P is a ghost town. Perl is dead. Plus Perl isn't a language its a program. Is there an ISO standard for Perl? a BNF grammar chart?

    Perl isn't a language its [sic] a program.

    Ah, you have it backwards. Perl is the language, perl is the program. See perlfaq1.

    Oh, wait — you said "Plus Perl". I don't know that language (or program). Sounds cool.

    Is there an ISO standard for Perl? a BNF grammar chart?

    Those things aren't necessary to be a language.
