in reply to Perl is dead

First of all, I am not going against your statement... but I am going against your logic.

You had about 170 non-anon on a lazy Sunday, so Perl is not dead. Okay what did you compare against? According to many people's standard, you can only claim Perl as alive if you got 200 non-anon. Obviously I made the standard up, but my point is where did you get your standard?

As many others have said many times in the past, Perl is not dead, but dying.

On the other hand... Wait for 2 years, when more applications get converted from Perl to something else, you probably will get 1000 non-anon on a very lazy Sunday, because everyone is trying to learn some Perl, so that they know what each line means, so they know what to convert to.

Good night and good luck!

      tr.pmnote-641932 { display: none !important; }

      Update: Ooop, corrected. Fixed my live example then forgot to clean up the actual post.

      Update: Another good alternative is to replace the content with something less inane. (Tweaked to leave the rep visible)

      tr.pmnote-641932 td.reply-body ul { content: url(http://icanhascheezbu +); }
        Thanks! This worked well, except that it should be "!important" instead.

      The best way to shut this guy up, is for you guys to make less logical mistakes.

        The best way to shut you up is to make mistakes which are less logical?

    I just got a *huge* income increase over my current annual rate for a new Perl gig. If this is Perl dying, please everyone continue kicking the corpse. (By the by, a recent project I was working on involved rewriting an immensely popular PHP site into Perl though I'm sure they'll come to their senses soon and redo it in Java or Erlang or something.)
