in thread To Perl or not to PERL.

You say that, but I can very well seeing people spelling it 'Pearl' to get past a recruiter/HR person who is searching for a 'pearl programmer'. And the same thing goes with 'C Sharp' -- and even more so, as I suspect that many of the resume search engines strip '#' character.

Resumes tend to be written for the gatekeepers and not the people that are trying to learn something from them. When your gatekeepers can't spell, how can you fault the writer for adapting to their requirements.
