in reply to Perl Being Taught in College?

Back when I was still an undergrad, I took several classes at CU, the Springs that taught Perl. Granted, most of the focus was on Web-based technique, but they were good classes nonetheless. Plus, they were taught by the chair of the CS department, Robert Sebesta, who's written a book or two in these areas. Of course, he wrote some questionable ones, but we'll let those slide.

Negaterd character class uber alles!
