in reply to Samples of big projects done in Perl

Well, if we're talking about enterprise applications here is a couple of Perl-based frameworks which can help you build BIG project: Catalyst - well-known framework to develop web-based applications, Gantry - young but perspective framework, Maypole - framework for MVC-oriented web applications.

It's difficult to develop a large project from scratch based on any programming language. The problem is not in Perl. The problem in lack of knowledge of appropriate tools IMHO.

    Full Ack. Programming is not just stuffing lines of code together, it's a form of engineering. It involves planning, conception *and* execution. A C programmer that is unexperienced with Perl will probably not be able to manage a 500_000 lines project in Perl. On the other hand, I, as a Perl dev, wouldn't be able to handle a 500_000 lines project in C.

    Language does matter, as well as the knowledge of that language. So, in my eyes, all those "C is more manageable than Perl" comparisons/fights/arguments are (excuse the word) crap. If everyone could just admit that *he* couldn't, I'd feel much more comfortable talking about differences of programming languages. There's a big space between "I don't believe a 1 million Perl project is manageable" and "I don't believe I could manage a 1 million Perl project." Just like it is with the difference of "C is more manageable than Perl" and "I'd be able to manage larger projects in C than in Perl."

    I agree with you. But if I understand correctly we're talking about possibility and effectiveness to use Perl in the enterprise (I don't like this word) projects. In my mind, to do that it's needed to know the Perl tools. Many developers start the project from the scratch and then tell how difficult develop using Perl.
