I agree entirely that Perl is a step in the right direction. However, the language is only a part of the problem,and only a part of the solution.

If you could write all your applications without recourse to an editor, version control software, a browser or other software to access CPAN, a datbase, test tools and all the other tools and utilities that the average perl programmer uses to write his applications, then I would agree with you, but you can't.

Or at least, you can't do it that way and expect to produce a high quality product, that meets or exceeds the requirements, on time, within budget, at the target cost and that will contniue to perform it's function with reasonable maintanence costs for a sufficient period of time that it will produce a positive ROI.
