in reply to Why Use Perl?

For the most part, you'll code about 3 lines of Perl for every 10 lines of C, C++ or Java. And studies have shown that debugging and maintenance cost is proportional to lines of code.

The cost of programmers being what it is, Perl is cheaper to use overall. (Plus, it's more fun!)
