Perl is no more a teenager. Yuppieeeee !!
It turned 20 yesterday, and a new and improved version (5.10) is out to celebrate the occasion.
I hope I won’t have to wait forever to get Perl 6 and Parrot.
And yes, the other day Asok did manage to reincarnate successfully. Thanks to his study of shape shifting at IIT, he no more looks like a Snickers Bar. So, the whole episode of dying and reincarnating was much of an popularity stunt, pretty much on the lines of today’s Indie TV serials.
