Perl: the Markov chain saw

This may seem a little odd, but what is it between Java and Perl? I happen to progrram in both and love them dearly - I use Java to make happy little web-based interfaces, 3d graphics, serious OOP stuff and do complicated geometric type stuff - calculating 3d lines and their ilk. In those cases I find having the typed variables in Java to be immensely useful. However, I handle all my CGI and file stuff with Perl. Anything that has anything to do with string handling goes straight to Perl. I'm never in the position where I have to ask myself 'Do I need Java or Perl now?'. Heck, I don't even know how to use Java's CGI elements - does Java have CGI elements?

For the record, Perl is most definitely a programming language, at least by my definition.

All conditionals must use a if (condition) {action} syntax. I know it's a little dumb, but it excludes Virus Builder and Virus Builder Script, so it makes me feel good :)


Microsoft and Shinra are the same. They're both killing the planet
