I admire you for standing up against Perl. I wouldn't want to work for
an employer who chose to do something so foolish as to use Perl on
purpose, on a new project. What are they thinking???
Using Perl is simply irresponsible and unprofessional, like building an
elementary school with asbestos insulation and lead paint. The fact that
people who didn't know any better used to do that years ago, is no
excuse for still not knowing any better and repeating the mistakes of
the past again.
My employer offered me today a Perl scripting project. If I really
need to use that language in it, I already informed them I will quit. :)
Just in case this happens, I'd be available for Lua-oriented job
offerings, either remotely or around the Globe. CV can be sent on
btw, does any of You on the list actually still use Perl for new
projects? I hope not.... My deep apologies, if you do.
