Perl 1.000 was released on this day in 1987. Perl is now 14 years old.

Happy birthday!

    For some more details, check out the Perl Timeline. It also contains Larry Wall's first Perl poem, and a report of merlyn singing "Happy Birthday to Perl" on Larry's answering machine. Fun stuff!

    And many more....

      Unfortunately, the links to the infamous photo of merlyn calling Larry to sing "Happy Birthday, Perl" are now dead (one leads to a porn site, and the domain registration lapsed on another).

      But as previously warned, I'm a packrat :) So without further ado, the crooning wizard.

        I could have sworn I was logged in when I wrote that... :-|
