Interesting article on O'ReillyNet talking about why one programmer chooses Perl over Java. I get this same thing a lot, where people ask me why I don't write Java. For me, the answer has always been that "I haven't found something that I can't do in Perl." There have been times where I've wanted to learn C, but I've really just gotten stuck on the fact that in the time I could learn the basics of anything else, I could write the entire project I wanted in Perl.
