in reply to What does "efficient" mean?!?

The only thing that I would add would be community. The languages support in terms of people and code. This has always been Perl's trump card. Perl's core open source values mean that instead of having to swim through seas of commercial hype to find a solution, you just go the CPAN and get the job done.
