in thread Improving p5p: Perl is going to stay Perl

I've thought of Perl for a long time like the PL/I or Ada of the dynamic, getting things done languages. Useful, but huge. I forget the exact quote and I can't find it to get it perfect or to credit someone. I don't even remember which language it was originally about, but I'm thinking it was PL/I. It goes something like "It's a number of complete programming languages each struggling to get free".
