Perl is not dead (part 1)

Perl is like the internal combustion engine. It has also been said that internal combustion is dead too. If the internal combustion engine is dead, then why are there so many young people learning to design new engines? The environment says we need to eliminate them, so why are engineers graduating and taking jobs that will lead them to the path of re-engineering the internal combustion engine?

The reason is because it actually works. It provides a lot of power returned given a specific amount/type of fuel. Plenty of people know how to fix it, and everyone knows that while the internal combustion engine will change significantly in the next 100 years, it will still be around.
