in thread why Perl5 will never die

Swiss army knives have their uses, but to keep a fleet of aircraft flying (to use a crude analogy) it's not going to cut it

That may be true, or it may not be true. The point is that just because the huge corporations can't make money off of it, dosn't mean its dead. It's still a very useful tool to the millions of us who just need to open a can. I don't give a sh*t about keeping a fleet of aircraft flying, I just want to open my can of beans.

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. ..... an animated JAPH

    Large corporations (and smaller ones) can and do make money from Perl all the time, and have been for years. It's not dead, no matter how many times demoralising trolls rock up to cry about it.
