in reply to Perl back in the top 10 most popular programming languages

I noticed this a while ago and it seems to mirror a trend I've seen in Perl. Specifically, Perl has managed to stabilize and in the last couple of years, it appears to actually be increasing in popularity, including work availability. When we started my company, we were expecting be maintaining legacy Perl apps, but we're mostly building new ones. We have several employees, multiple contractors, and multiple clients. One client even went so far as to say they were sick of being bitten by hype of new technologies. That's part of why Perl's "battle tested" stability keeps it in the game.
