Celebrating 25 years of Perl

Doesn’t matter which OS you’re running, somewhere in there, your system depends on Perl to get stuff done. Perl turned 25 years old on December 19th. Though venerable old version 5 remains the most popular, many have moved onto Perl 6, which intentionally broke compatibility and still isn’t officially ‘production ready.’ I can’t imagine administering a system without Perl though, so tonight I’m raising a glass of champagne in the direction of founder and creator Larry Wall.
