My reply was extensive enough that I made an update to the root node of this post. I don't think anyone should mistake my main point, but it's clear from what you wrote that I failed to make the point clearly enough.

    Maybe it was just me who failed to grasp your main point :)

    At any rate, I think my point is still valid. The distinction to me is that instead of saying "you're out of date, Perl *isn't* a scripting language", I think the actual message should be "you're out of date, Perl's not just a scripting language, it's so much more!" (wow, that *really* does sound like marketing :)

    The rest of my tirade was just my thoughts on how we got into this perceptual mess in the first place.
