I don't think I was recommending TinyPerl. I said that I am using it and I described why. I also said that YouTube isn't a good way to learn programming, but I didn't say no one should be using YouTube. The reason I use TinyPerl 5.8 is because it's tiny. lol It's only 448 kilobytes in size. Strawberry Perl, on the other hand, takes up 154 megabytes. And that's just the size of the zip file. (Btw I don't use any of TinyPerl's modules except and and maybe Carp, but other than that, I don't use anything else. So, if the older modules have security issues, I am not affected by those, because I don't use them.)

" hasn't been updated in many years. You're missing decades of improvements and bug fixes."

I haven't come across a bug yet. When I do, I'll switch. If something is not broken, don't fix it. :D And that's why I am using XP also by the way. And no, I am not promoting Windows XP. Don't get me wrong. I am just saying that I use Windows XP because it works for me, and I love it. It probably won't be good for somebody else's needs. But I figured out a way to make it safe and secure for myself, so I am fine with it. And I have been using it for a long time. Believe it or not, I think, it has clear advantages over using the newest versions of Windows. Not many, but some. I'll post a link here to an article I wrote about how I do it:
How To Make Windows XP Safe.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
