The Perl programming language

Perl has been my pro­gram­ming weapon of choice since 1994 and a con­sis­tent pay­check since 2007. I start­ed [blog­ging about it][tag/perl] in earnest on New Year’s Day 2021.

This post also serves to test Bridgys new abil­i­ty to sup­port favorites as well as likes. Because I like many com­put­er lan­guages, but Perl is my favorite. ❤️

And I’m not sure how MetaCPAN is explic­it­ly part of this ini­tia­tive. I don’t see it mentioned.
