Do you like Perl? Do you count yourself among people?

If both your answers are "Yes", you might want to add your reasons to the discussion Why do people like Perl? on dev.to.

I guess we've had similar threads here over the years, but talking to a broader auditorium can be different.

    "...you like Perl..."

    Yes, sure as you may have noticed ;-) It's because i made my living with it for some years. And in the meantime i became an expert in parallelism ($sarcasm = 1;). Because i learned a small subset of the language while i learned to operate a computer.

    Minor update: Please don't take this too serious my fellow monks...

    Best regards, Karl

    I like Perl in the same way and for the same reason that a carpenter likes a hammer or a cook likes a rolling-pin. I have a job to do and it gets it done.
