TDL4 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello all dear monks,
I'm a Computer Science student, and I'm taking a Concepts of Programming Languages course.
I've been asked to write a report (In a group) detailing a language of my choosing, I chose Perl since I heard Larry Wall talk about the 5 languages everyone should learn about and Perl caught my attention.
I just thought I might find some help here regarding an overview of the language and maybe somewhat of an evaluation or cost considerations.
Just some headers or resources would be fine, I don't expect any one to write the report for me or anything ;)
Many a thank wisdom Perl Monks.
