Re: [umesh.sherkhane] comparing perl

Probably the best reason for learning perl is to gain access to its huge library of free, well tested and well documented modules on CPAN. I suspect that most of the people on this forum began leaning perl because they wanted to use either database, network, GUI, or OLE modules.
Perl is a complex language, but it does have simple subsets which we can begin using immediately.
