in reply to Perl How Many

A more telling stat might be how many CPAN authors there are. That gives you a rough count of how many people out there are both skilled enough in Perl to write something for CPAN, and conscientious enough to actually do it. Yes, I know, some of the modules are dreck, but I think the overall quality is high.

    As of 19 Aug 2003, CPAN has 3061 authors, according to the PAUSE Who is Who.

    Once it's Turing complete, everything else is just syntactic sugar.
