in thread why Perl5 will never die

I see Perl5 staying alive a longtime as an programming art form. I think many programmers just enjoy thinking in terms of "how would I use Perl5 to model this". There is something seductive about the way a Perl5 trained mind approaches a problem. There will probably be podcasts in 20 years, where the 1-liner, and many other programs, are appreciated as artful thinking.
