I am the proverbial "accidental" programmer. I have found that I really like Perl and programming so I am pursuing that route now. I am the Debian systems administrator and junior Perl programmer for a company called Inspire.

I did not know there was outright hostility. Why would that be?

I am ignoring the original post by "ank" as tripe.

There is a glitch happening somewhere. I see posts today but only a couple. Looks like it "died" after 9/11.

I wonder if something like the Badger framework (Andy Wardley) would give most of what you want with Moose but with better numbers. I have never seen them compared. The benefit I see is that Badger doesn't have outside dependencies so would be easier to "ship" with Padre.

I cannot tell you how painful it was to go to that site. Camelia? A buttefly?! WTF!

All the talk about modern Perl and nice looking web sites for Perl was lost on somebody apparently.

Exactly...and for "learning" books...I can print out a chapter at a time and make annotations. I somehow cringe in writing in a book.

For document interchange stuff I use XML and for data interchange stuff I use JSON. That works for me the majority of the time.
