While Perl may not be the most perfect language (which one is?), it covers quite well just about every aspect an Internet programmer like myself might require, and in my opinion beats out all the other so-called programming languages hands down. A little complicated at times but unbelievably flexible, a bit geeky also but I'm a geek so that does not matter, and there is an extensive source of literature which makes good reading and late night entertainment into the wee hours of the morning. What hobby could be more fun may I ask?
