Perl is not dead (Part 3)

The Perl community has stuck around, despite the old really bad Perl programs that have been written. They have written and maintained modules on the CPAN. The CPAN is the single best feature of Perl. Without the libraries on CPAN, Perl wouldn't be able to stand the test of time against the other newer languages like Python or Ruby.

The Perl community is very much alive too. There are workshops and conferences put together by volunteers, because they love the language. I am one of those people, and I personally have thrown hundreds of hours into planning and executing perl workshops.
