How long have you been using Perl?
i use perl since 1998, and since the first time i've loved it. I remember i started to work using linux boxes as mail servers to the faculties at the university of chihuahua and the script to add the users was in perl, after using it a couple of times i opened the file to see the script, and that was it, i was hooked. since that day i've been enjoying perl and the great culture that sorrounds it. i'm almost finished my masters degree and every (well almost every) piece of code i've wrote in the process has been in perl. this language pushes yo to learn more every time and be a better programmer (and heck, why not, as consecuence a better human being ;-).
i sould stop now 'cause i'm getting a little romantic :-P
ignorance, the plague is everywhere
