Subject: Perl is great - thanks

Hi there,

Since I started learning to program in Perl, I have fallen in love in
it. I find it particularly powerful for writing cgi programs.  My first
program in Perl is a quiz program - nothing complicated but it has made
me realise perl's power.

The learning curve for me was steep- being a self-taught "programmer" -
but after I've overcome the initial hurdles, I'm beginning to enjoy it.

I read that a new version is coming up - Perl 6 - and it will be a sort
of rewrite of Perl 5. I'm looking forward to its alpha launch and can't
wait to use it. My only hope is that Perl will still be Perl - the
syntax will be preserved and so on.

Many thanks for Perl!
