I thought it was strange but now I know why it does not come with any version of Windows.
MS doesn't bundle any third-party app with Windows. It would be obligated to support an application outside of its control if it did.
Does this snub from Microsoft give PERL less credibilty than other software that is enterprise class like WORD or INTERNET EXPLORER?
Funny you should mention Word. Word doesn't come with Windows. Are you saying that MS is snubbing Word too?
I guess what I am trying to say is if someone has tech as me has trouble with PERL what does that average Joe experiance when trying to hack code?
You successfully got Perl running with little effort. Sounds like you did great! On the second day, you even wrote a little program. Awesome! I'd say that's very good for someone who has a awful grasp of the basics. What are you complaining about?
