  • If you extend "the Perl community" to include some additional territory from within the open source nation, then the 20 years is true. Just consider patch, configure, rn, and warp to be the earlier portions of the Larry Wall state, and perl is the new town in that state. Or you could just say that they messed up their fact a bit.
    • i know "patch" is Larry work, but didnt know about configure,rn and warp.
      What is rn and warp ?!

      tia
      • rn [wikipedia.org].

        Wikipedia doesn't seem to know Warp, but it's a space war game.
        • Warp is a space war game from the mid 80's. It was designed in the days of ASCII terminals, which could be from a huge variety of manufacturers running mutually incompatible protocols, so you controlled them using termcap / curses. So the "graphics" are quite primitive by today's standards. Hmm, I wonder if it would still be compilable, I'll have to look around for the source code.
      • You mean metaconfig, not configure (which generally refers to the GNU autoconf, at least nowadays).
