I've started getting Google alerts for the keyword "Perl", a beta
service of Google Labs http://www.google.com/newsalerts. 

The following alerg made me wonder/snicker....

    ... Many sites use Perl as their scripting language, but our
    company chose C because we felt it was more flexible in the long
    term. ... <http://webdesign.about.com/library/weekly/aa040698.htm>

If you have to be stuck in a gear, first gear is the one to choose,
but who needs to write CGI in C? Perl is written in C. That's good
enough for me. So much for rapid.
