in reply to Perl A Ground Breaking Language?

If you want to talk to someone who knows a little about Perl, talk to me. I know as little as anyone in the Monastery. However, struggling programmer though I am, I did take a look at the GBL site.

While some good points about individual languages were made, essentially it was just an opinion poll; no experience necessary. Besides, there was no prize in the Crackerjack(t) box. What does Perl get for being among the ground-breaking languages? Better reputation? More money? A trip to Hollywood? Reputation, IMO, is word-of-mouth from the people who use programming languages. Not from people who vote in opinion polls.

Opinion polls are for things like the Ten Most Beautiful and Twelve Best Elvis Movies.


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?
