Yes, we are Perl programmers.
The granddaddy of most web development languages, Perl is very much in use today. Perl programming has never gone out of style, because it is such a flexible, efficient way to build web applications.
Why is Perl programming so great? Here are a few reasons:
- It's everywhere (seriously, it's hard to find a web server *not* running Perl)
- No licensing fees
- Complete integration with Apache web server via mod_perl
- Because Perl can be compiled, there's almost nothing faster
- Wide support within the Open Source development community
- Numerous libraries of existing code that make development even faster
On that last note it's been estimated that the dollar value of developer contributions to Perl measures in the millions - and yet it's free to use!
