    What do you use perl for?

    • for fun
    • l'art pour l'art
    • garbage in, garbage out
    • whitehat stuff
    • blackhat stuff
    • keep a business running I don't understand
    • keep my own business running
    • make money
    • Save the world! (how?)
    • Other (please elaborate)

        That was 23 years ago ... it would be interesting to see if something has changed in this time ...

      As usual: a combination of many of those. I fist look at perl with *any* job-related programming/scripting issue. I also look at perl when trying to express a new idea. The I us it to improve my CPAN modules and to compare to other languages. In all of these FUN! is the most important factor.

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    What's the best IDE you've ever used?
    • Komodo
    • Visual Studio
    • JetBrains
    • I've never used one
    Any others? (need not be Perl specific)
