in reply to Who is Perl? (Anthropomorphizing Everything)

This reminds me of an article in the very first issue of The Perl Journal, where Larry was comparing programming languages to music styles. A must read. On line at:

    Thank you! I'd read that way back when (side note: notice how "way back when" could be last month or 10 years ago, depending on who says it?), and the mindset displayed in the article was what sold me on trying out Perl in the first place. I hadn't thought about that article for a long time. Actually, I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it.

    Sweeper++ for reminding me.
