Anyway, I sorry I inadvertently started this part of the thread; I wasn't
telling you to quit Perl. I was just being annoying and noting my observation
that quite a few people did slowly drop out of Perl after discovering
Python. But that something *does* happen doesn't mean it *should* happen.
Perl has its strengths and it is an interesting language.
