When did all the talk of Perl5 dying out begin? It must have been 15 years ago when Python arrived on the scene. Yet.... here we are, still the place of last resort where programmers come because their multi-gigabyte Microsoft Programming Pack didn't have a ready made simple solution. Perl5, was, and still is, the best swiss army knife of the programming world. What prompted me to write this, is an article in the Perl Newsletter on how simple Perl makes it to connect to UPS and get tracking information. Not only does he solve the socket connection, he color codes the output for a better man-machine interface. terminal colors to convey information. Its articles like this, and further, that Perl5 has the ability to do that, is the reason Perl5 will never die! :-)

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
