in reply to Perl is a black diamond language?

One remark ...
I do beleave that perl is not the best language for someone to "start" programming with.
Its just to loose and to flexable ... for a lack of better words, to easy to pick up bad habbits :)

    And the language that I presume many of us started out with was fine? I am of course referring to BASIC.


      Well I started out with C using gcc as my compiler ... but really I started doing client side IRC scripting long before that :)
