  • Over here in SG it's just as difficult (if not more) to get someone who even knows what Perl is. This perception is not a good picture of Perl, because in this part of the world it's just as difficult to get a Delphi developer. To make themselves marketable, people like to choose tools which allows them to move around (or get hired) easily. We see less of the code enthusiasts who spend time evaluating the various styles of development tool, and decide for themselves which they will WANT to code in. But that's reality. It's a survival game. My personal take on how Perl can prevent itself from fossilising, is to figure a way to really get Perl 6 out the door and renew its relevance in the modern world. Perl 5 is great, but we are all evoluntionists. Me? I'm a Perl man. But now I'm also a C# guy too. I have to.
