in reply to Perl is dead

I'm heading back to Perl because I was forced to use Java for a bit and I can't believe that people are using that language for flow control and ETL in the unix environment. I ran a simple benchmark and Perl ran 30x faster than comparable Java code. Does this mean that Perl is 30x faster than Java? No. But in my situation, there is a clear advantage to switching back to Perl.

It's hard to beat Perl for small unix applications. (For possibly large values of 'small')

Update: Fixed some of the more creative capitalizations.
