in reply to Re^2: Perl is dead
in thread Perl is dead
OK Perhaps morphing was a poor choice. I don't know how long it's been available on Windows, but there are still a few places that it doesn't run. So I really meant more of "Broadening it's scope" type of change.
Also, It looks like perl is gaining features, faster than it's gaining additional platforms. Not that I thnk this is right or wrong, but there's just something about an "object oriented 'glue' language" that sounds oxymoron-ish. Make no mistake, I love all the features, but if we're debating whether perl is dead (or dying), perhaps the "cure" is to get it running more places.
One of my dream projects when (if) I retire, and the main reason I hang out here at the Monastery, is to someday have enough smarts to port perl to a new platform. There's a chance it will get there ahead of me, but the training I gain in the meantime is invaluable.
So, thats what I meant, sorry about the confusion....and the rambling. As of todate, my prose is more proficient than my perl. ;-) Aim9b.
