in reply to I want you to convince me to learn Perl

I want you to go to Perl for following reasons. First and foremost, there are a lot of communities and active contributors for Perl. It isn't much difficult if you know basic C programming control structures. There are a lot of modules available in CPAN for your day-to-day usage. It is very much helpful for parsing. It supports REGEX in greater extent. Once you start learning REGEX, you would have convinced more and you start referring others to use Perl.

[Tux]: correct
[Tux]: and I know about companies that blocked him for legal reasons. His inability to fix issues (or his tendency to reject/delete issues if he doesn't like them) makes companies block his stuff. They require support
