I have strayed from the True Path of Perl. I have not only taken it upon myself to learn Java, but earlier today I released my first open-source Java library.
Though I expect any absolution to be costly and demanding, please at least consider showing mercy towards me on the grounds that the code itself is designed to bring elements of Perl to the impoverished of Java. Indeed, I've even licensed it under the most-revered Artistic License. For all I know, this may be the first Java library licensed under Perl-originated terms.
I'll go about my penance, now.
