in reply to Why did you become a Perl expert (or programmer)?

In one of my first jobs, twenty years ago, in the end of 20th century, i had to write a small web application (my first one), using asp and sql server, on NT4. For some reason it was really difficult to locate any documentation about asp back then. So, having just recently installed my first linux box, i looked for a language suited for web applications, plus a free software database. That's when i discovered Perl (and PostgreSQL). Installed Slackware in a small pc and wrote the (really simple) application in one day. Whenever i didn't knew how something was done in Perl, my first assumption/guess was right. This language had the same way of thinking as me. Never stopped developing in Perl since then.

    This reason has been given by users like me and TheDamian. So you're in excellent company, partly. :P
