in reply to How is Perl for automation?

Perl 5/7 (6 is now called 'raku' and is a different language) will make you a literal ninja. Anything you read about perl dying (or BSD, etc) is FUD and should be completely ignored. They are lying to you because they do not want you to have the power of a ninja, which is everyone's birth right. Best part is it helps you learn everything else, never hinders. Can't say the same about other technologies or frameworks. So you are here and that's an amazing start and I tell you nothing but the truth.

    At best this is all an embellishment. A literal Ninja is from Feudal Japan. Regarding the Ninja chat this is all demonstrably false. IMHO chat like this isn't helpful to anyone, and doesn't address the question at all, or attempt to draw any further information from OP to prove how Perl addresses any requirements. In and of itself Perl 5 doesn't "make" anyone anything. There's vast history here of people claiming to be experts never mind beginners who know nothing of perl, while understanding nothing of computing or problem solving at all.

      By virtue of being here, they have demonstrated some ability to problem solve...

        No, they haven't. Staying here and talking nonsense does not demonstrate problem solving skills at all.

      You're interpretation is far too literal. This is hyperbole and he's very obviously joking. The use of the word "literal" while speaking so figuratively is also known as irony. Sheesh!

        So your point is that this is a joke response that in no way addresses the question raised? We have enough garbage regularly posted here, we don't need anymore.
