in reply to Perl is dying

I have to wonder why you, and many others, are so concerned with what language other people use? It almost seems like you're too scared to make up your own mind, when others around you claim that php/python/ruby/whatever is better.

Either Perl does what you need it to do, or it doesn't, and that should be your only criteria and concern. Stop worrying about what the rest of the fashion sheep are doing and do what works for you,

If Perl is dying, this could be the start of the longest bedside vigil in history.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?

    ++, BrowserUk, I completely missed that point. So simple - it works for you, or it doesn't. Use it, or don't... How hard is that?

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I have a graphics app (Poser) that has a scripting interface that unfortunately uses Python. And if I want to do some moderate modding in Civilization IV then I need to learn some Python (the easy stuff is modifying XML files and the really hard stuff would be writing your own AI in C).

    Anyway, the point is that the decisions of others do affect me and that is why I should be concerned about it. I mean, I wish I could easily MOD Civ4 using Perl. :-/
