Uma discussão dos prós e dos contras de Perl...

Perl is the granddaddy of the open-source scripting languages, with
the 1.0 release seeing the light of day way back in 1987. By
comparison, PHP wasn't released until 1994, and Python didn't have its
0.9 release until 1991—only the Unix shells themselves have an older
pedigree. The O'Reilly "Camel" book (Programming perl) has been a
ubiquitous presence on cubicle bookshelves for decades.

Like any language, perl has its strengths and weaknesses. With that in
mind, here's some recommended uses and abuses of the elder statesman
of scripting.
