in reply to The future of Perl?

The only thing I can say for certain is that Perl has a future with me. I like it, therefor I use it. It works. Good things go away when they are no longer good. I think that in and of itself determines that Perl will be around for quite a while....

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...otherwise, the problem is not a problem, it is simply an inconvenient fact

    My position exactly. But like me, you must be in the position of mostly choosing what you use. That puts you in a very small minority of coders. Most get told what they have to use; and it isn't Perl.

    And it isn't going to be unless something changes. And nothing is going to change unless we, the existing Perl community decide it will.
