Thank You

A little history and the inspiration for this poem. In 2002 we used Perl to develop a poetry site. Wow! 12 years of stable site availability with very little downtime. In the past 12 years, this Perl based site has served over 100,000 poets – all possible because of the great work of the Perl programming community.

A Poem about Perl
Perl enables the creation of programs that are beautiful
We know that Perl's features are most powerful and suitable

Blessing the normal programmer with mind-blowing expression
We are so grateful Larry Wall chose the computing profession

Thank you for over a decade of help from the Perl Monks’ ranks
Please accept our most sincere, heartfelt thanks!

2/23/2014: Updated to remove reference to other site.
2/23/2014: Altered the poem to improve its flow.
2/22/2014: Removed the Perl poetry code that sent the email.

    Understand how this site works. Not just the mechanics, the culture.

    Don't complain about reputation (or its human analogue, XP).

    Don't post stuff that looks like spam. Don't post stuff that looks like you're begging. Don't post stuff that directs people to other sites.

    Post good stuff that people will like.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      I see. Thank you for the info.

    Thanks are one thing, but the code should come with a WARNING that it sends an Email to, which IMO makes the whole post look like spam...

      Good point. I added the WARNING. Thank you.

    I read this as a challenge.

    Write your verse generator (Perl: the Markov Chainsaw)
        that prints a few lines
            and prompts the user
    Submit this to PoeTryPoem.Com? (yes/no)
      You have a really good idea that could help writers suffering from writers block. Instead of just randomly generating a verse, the Perl script could parse the previously entered lines and assist the writer with their next line(s). Something like "eclipse code completion" for poets.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
