Among the advantages of selecting Perl:
- CPAN -- a library of thousands of well-tested, reliable modules that will save you re-inventing the wheel, time after time...
- Its utility as a language for quickly protoyping complex programs -- and from which prototypes, translation to C (and company) becomes just a SMOP...
- The fact that its tools/capabilities include such as OO; GUI development; and so on ... and so on.
One can surely belabor this list at much greater length... but I'll post this and encourage the Monks to provide futher incentive to choose Perl.
But, before I go, I second the observations by Monsignor choroba challenging your "lolgical side" with respect to readability and popularity.
If I've misconstrued your question or the logic needed to answer it, I offer my apologies to all those electrons which were inconvenienced by the creation of this post.
