in reply to Perl is dead
Would this mean that Perl will not become officially dead until this website reaches 0 users per day? I don't know. What would the requisites be for a dead language? Lisp has fooled us all with its death but is still lingering. Cobol and assembly have understandably come to an end. But even so not really. There is a large demand for legacy coders today. Even pre-standard C coders are needed.
I suppose it is fair to say that even dead languages are never really dead. Perhaps just reborn?
So therefor, Perl will never die. Just become reborn.
