in reply to where did yall learn perl?

I suppose my answer would look somewhat strange, but I learned perl playing MUD (textual multiplayer game).

This game quickly became for me to a game of programming my own NPC (bot), not just about gnomes, elves and orks =)

    Not strange at all, if you ask me -- Practicing your programming skils on a project you care about is essential for learning.
