What is wrong with you ? I've said that people accustomed to Java and C#, which are popular languages, feel more at home with Python. I have never thought that there is something wrong with Perl.

I've also said that people who are not familiar with Perl should rewrite Perl programs, instead of trying to incorporate them in their own projects. I'd say that it is quite sensible advice.
