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

Dear Anon Monk,

    At 38 Years, I dont know if anyone here would have tried learning Perl.

I was 50+ when I started working with Perl. And that was a long time ago. But I have been programming my whole life and yet every day I learn something new about Perl, and programming and system admin and . . .

Most programming languages/computers/etc. that I was an expert in my 20's and 30's and 40's don't even exist today. Even the 'C', I worked with for years, is now called 'traditional C' and I can't get my early 'C' code to even compile, but my Perl code works. My first use of Perl was for a Fortune 50 Company, and I hated it. But that was my problem and not Perl. And the first script I wrote for my company is still in production today. So if your lucky like I am, you'll be using Perl in your 60's and on.

Perl is probably the most consistent and staple computer 'thing' you'll ever learn!

Good Luck...Ed

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
