re: Why do people like Perl? VIEW POST


Being able to hack together a quick solution in Perl is just pure joy to me! While I haven't used Perl for any big, long-term software projects -- it probably wouldn't be my language of choice for these purposes -- I believe there is great value in having such a tool for quick-n-dirty scripts that you might only need temporarily, e.g. for test data creation. In that sense, Perl can be the most efficient language IMHO. Plus, I still think that it provides the best experience when working with regular expressions.
