in reply to Perl Popularity

Perhaps this will make you feel a bit better about Perl popularity. The university where I work is part of a consortium of schools that purchased a certain brand of web software.

One of the things the consortium had to decide on was a common programming language. I don't know if they were offered a list of choices or everyone submitted their favorite language. Either way, when the votes were tallied, Perl had won.

How that compares to world popularity, I have no way of knowing. It seems, though, that Perl is not going to wither away just yet.


The Needs of the World and my Talents run parallel to infinity.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
