"In 1986, Larry Wall was working for a subsidiary of Burroughs on a
project codenamed Blacker. The client was the National Security
Agency. One aim was to develop what are called multilevel secure
wide-area networks. Larry was in charge of an installation in
California that consisted of three VAX machines and three Suns linked
over an encrypted line to a similar array in Pennsylvania. His
supervisor asked him to develop a program that would enable him to
configure the machines on both coasts, while generating reports about
these interactions. He was given a month to come up with something. "
Programming Perl Cap 27 Pág 658:
"O mais incrível é que ele continuou lançando a linguagem enquanto
trabalhava no Jet Propulsion Laboratory
, e depois na NetLabs".
Alguém ainda tem dúvida de alguma coisa ?

"If you’ve never written anything thoughtful, then you’ve never had
any difficult, important, or interesting thoughts. That’s the secret:
people who don’t write, are people who don’t think."
