The history of Perl Poetry
Message ID:
I'm researching an article on Perl poetry and feeling a bit out of my
depth, not being a poet myself. describes Sharon Hopkins as
"the reigning Perl Poetry Pumpqueen" after the publication of her 1992
definitive work "Camels and Needles: Computer Poetry meets the Perl
Programming Language". This is an interesting paper and I'm curious
to know how she came to write it. Does anyone know what provoked her
into writing this paper? How/when did she meet Larry? Did she ever
work with him? Apart from her wonderful poetry, what other stuff has
she done with Perl? Is she still writing Perl and poetry today?

Was the writing of poetry ever a design consideration in any version
of Perl?
