in thread Perl as a Platform?
Perl is a viable platform. Though the majority of my applications are now for the web. Users print using File > Print from their thin client (web browser). Windowing toolkit--one big window, with various tables rendered in HTML tables. On the backend, Perl can access most any storage, from dbm files to databases through DBI. And the middle-tier business logic written in Perl is portable to most any OS, as long as Perl is available for it.
