Hi harangzolt33 thanks so much for posting such a detailed reply. I'm also a beginner and want to ask you a question, would PERL be useful in the following situations:
  • Programs and applications development
  • Systems Administration
  • Database development
  • Video game development
  • Web development
  • Secondly, how would you say PERL has the upper hand over other languages, such as Python? Thanks for reading and looking forward to hearing back from you !

      harangzolt33 isn't best placed to respond, since they insist on using decades old tools, and using them arguably badly. To respond to your points in order

      • Yes.
      • Yes.
      • Yes.
      • Not for modern FPS style games.
      • Yes.

      You're probably going to have to ask more specific questions to get a meaningful answer. Better advice already exists in this thread for places to start.

      I don't know Python. I plan to learn it one day, but that day hasnt arrived yet. I feel like marto has provided a better answer than I could. Here you can talk to real programmers who have been doing this all their life, and this is their career. I'm just a hobby programmer, so I can't give you professional advice.
