in reply to Roads to Perl

In the early 90s I worked as a cartographer using mostly C and X/Motif to build online mapping software. I needed an application to allow users at 12 regional offices to print maps from any office's server to any printer. A friend of mine said "Hey, why not use perl?" And thus my first perl-based web app was born. I sometimes think how different my life would be, both personally and professionally, had that suggestion been different.
