My 10c worth, as a person who works with ERP packages a lot, is that
I wouldn't write an ERP package in anything *other* that perl.
Take your typical HelloWorld.java and helloworld.pl and scale both up to 60000
times the size and see what happens..... ;-)
In my opinion, perl scales better than people believe.
It all in the perl meme folks, if you say perl isn't suited to the ERP
environment then it becomes 'true', (for various values of 'true').
