Dear Anon Monk,

    At 38 Years, I dont know if anyone here would have tried learning Perl.

I was 50+ when I started working with Perl. And that was a long time ago. But I have been programming my whole life and yet every day I learn something new about Perl, and programming and system admin and . . .

Most programming languages/computers/etc. that I was an expert in my 20's and 30's and 40's don't even exist today. Even the 'C', I worked with for years, is now called 'traditional C' and I can't get my early 'C' code to even compile, but my Perl code works. My first use of Perl was for a Fortune 50 Company, and I hated it. But that was my problem and not Perl. And the first script I wrote for my company is still in production today. So if your lucky like I am, you'll be using Perl in your 60's and on.

Perl is probably the most consistent and staple computer 'thing' you'll ever learn!

Good Luck...Ed
