in thread How to wake up the Perl community?

Yes I am well aware of cobol usage which was exactly my point. Cobol is still in use, in other words it has not died. However their are serious problems with finding new developers willing to learn it as older developers retire. This is a situation which I see could occur in perl without a constant influx of new young talent.

    That's great news for COBOL programmers, as they can charge $BIGNUM. To play devil's advocate, people who are good at perl should *encourage* it to become an unkillable niche language, a rare skill, so that we can bathe in money.

[pryrt]: In the link brackets...
[stevieb]: guys, not *your* mother, "Your Mother" here on PM. Sheesh. Like I haven't spoken to your mom
[stevieb]: pryrt the brackets work in such a thing? I have nobody to test against. I will try :)
