in thread Taking advantage of multi-processor architecture

In fact I did read the FAQ. If it's not an acronym, it sure is a coincidence.

http://search.cpan.org/src/NWCLARK/perl-5.8.4/META.yml

Note the abstract is "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language". Isn't that an "official" statement?

But I really don't want to argue about this. I'll go back to my first statement that it's all quite silly. So, I concede to you all who say Perl and not PERL. I will remain "outside of the know" :)

    This isn't an argument, it's just contradiction.

    (Carp, that's still Python . . .)

    As hardburn points out below, that was a retronym backronym coined after the language was named. If you read chapter 27 of the Camel it gives the full history of where "Perl" came from (and where the "A" for "And" went).

    Update: Bah, bacro- not retro-. I'm going back to bed.
