You're name says it all.
You don't know fuck about my name, grasshopper.
Anyhow, chief, I was a software engineer about 10 years ago, working with Perl when Php was in it's infancy. Now I live in a "tech" city, and am pretty hard-pressed to find anything where Perl is the primary language used for development. Most of it are legacy systems.

The bulk of employers want php right least in my market. I love Perl and would like to see more jobs available in my market.

So, yeah, I am right. Image is a lot of things in this world. I don't like that, but it's true. So, don't shoot the messenger.

And your point is? I did not make any statement on whether Perl is "dying" or "thriving", or what language is favourite with the "bulk of employers".

What I'm saying that whether Perl is dead by Christmas or the one true language doesn't depend on whether this site looks like someones wrong memories of the web of 1995.

Or do you think the bulk of employers, when deciding between PHP or Perl make the decision for PHP after visiting Perlmonks and think "Nah, this looks like what I remember of 1995", let's go for PHP?

Also, I don't know what the ratio of perl programmers to perlmonk users actually is, but this domain has been around for at least 10 years or so. It's referenced all over the place, and is on the 1st page of a Google search for 'perl', so I don't know what the heck you're talking about.
Hmmm, I said less than 5% of the Perl programmers have ever visited Perlmonks. You, who has been, according to your profile, using Perl professionally for several years, has only signed up 5 days ago. Not exactly figures that really disprove my statement.
This site, in part, represents the perl community, just by association.
So what? According to your earlier statement, it's employers deciding on PHP now. I doubt such employers are part of the Perl community.

Do not overestimate "the community" (which in itself is a very vague term), which is just a subset of the pool of Perl programmers.
