( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After my Raspberry Pi stuff I did for a couple of years, I've migrated away from SBC and now focus primarily on micro controllers to perform actions I need done.

I haven't had the 'need' for Perl in some time. Realistically, I'm only checking PerlMonks because it's a habit. I also still use Perl for quick one-off basic math and localized problems.

Other than that, being an ardent Perl user for a couple of decades, I'm finding my desire waning quite quickly. I don't really have the excitement I once held for Perl, nor is the community the same as it was years ago.

I am uncertain as to the future I have with Perl. I know I love Perl to death, but death does not sustain future generations.

I'm starting to think that Perl has been fractured to the point that it's been bypassed, and unless someone comes up with some magical cure to phase in some niche for it, maybe we need to retire.

Flustered and aggrieved I am as we all are, and even though I make money because of Perl, Perl might not be the best recommendation going forward.

As always, opinions welcome.
