I feel that a lot of people, especially newer perl users, equate perl with web development. That's really quite a narrow view - perl is much bigger than just web apps. In particular it is incredibly well suited to all sorts of data migration jobs, data warehousing, etc.

I couldn't agree more, I use Perl everyday and I don't do any web development. I use it for application servers, data processing, lots of database work ...etc.
