I am a long time perl user. I first used perl 4 in about 1993 for text processing and sys admin work. With a couple of years the web found me and I became the only Programmer/Analyst to use perl in a all Cobol shop. I had several fun years delivering CGI applications with 2 to 4 week turnarrounds rather than the nominal 4 month to two year delivery. I didn't make friends with the IT management so I moved on.

Since then I have become management and I don't get the programming time I used to.

Since I have stayed in the web dev world mostly on LAMP platforms the people that work for me have to endure a mildly strong evangilism for perl even when the P in lamp is for PHP.

In 2003 I start changing carrers and as of Sept 2005 I am now working in the Accounting Field. All my tech background still come into play in my current job but my main focus is the accounting.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
