Hot on the heels of someone asking what is the advantage of perl, here is someone asking what the disadvantages are. Here are some I can think of:
- perl can't run other languages:
It can't build a project (ExtUtils::MakeMaker)
It's inefficient (perlxstut)
- It can't make tea.
- This "perl" of which you speak might not be the Perl interpreter, but simply another program with the same name.
