Every once in a while I'm asked "So what's so special about that language, Perl?". Usually, I try to explain how I find Perl special, how I find it natural, and yet so powerful. Frankly, it's been quiet a while since I'd last written anything in Perl. It's also been more than a year since I'd written here. A few days ago I decided to take Perl out of the shelf, just for mere fun. Suprisingly (or not), I did not forget. Everything goes just (well, almost..) as fluently as it used to. Feels like a natural langauge...
