No, what you say is all true. The point I was trying to make is *not* that it was impossible to do large scale programs in Perl 5, only that it does not lend itself as easily and obviously to such tasks as some other languages do. I mean really, if it did would Ruby exist?

More importantly, I agree that I want them to get it right as well. If additional time is what it takes, then so be it. That does not make it any less disappointing nor does it allow Perl to be the tool I am using today. Instead, I am off to write Python. Bye!
