( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
If I was interviewing someone for a potential job and he or she had been writing CGI applications for 5 years without seriously investigating what resources were available to do things better, then I would recommend against hiring.

And if I was interviewing someone for a job and they posted this I wouldn't hire them either, but that's not the slightest bit relevant now is it?

punchcard_don is not asking "would you hire me based on this post" he's asking for recommendations on whether other areas of Perl programming are worth learning1. Saying "I'm wouldn't hire you cause you suck nananananana"2 in response doesn't really add anything to the discussion.

In addition, he says he's been "working with Perl for 5 years now." That doesn't mean it's been his full time employment, it doesn't mean he claims to be an expert, it doesn't mean anything more than he wrote.

Either way, he's asking for advice and trying to learn. Your reply definately won't assist him in that area. I expected better.

1Before it's pointed out. Yes, everything is worth learning, but currently time is finite so you have to prioritize.

2Not a direct quote.
