Why do you use Perl?
- I don't. I'm just on PerlMonks for the free beer
- Because Larry's my dad, and he told me I had to
- Perl is just chicken scratch anyway, so when I write all of my code using regex's, people actually think I know what I'm doing
- Because Perl makes easy things easy, and hard things possible
- I was told that if I use Perl, I'm allowed to be lazy, and lazy works for me
- I really like the writing style of many of its books authors
- ...what else is there?
- easy to use, easy to understand
- it has one of the best online communities anywhere
