XML::Simple for Perl Developers

davorg Re:Who The Hell Still Uses Perl? (186 comments)

Outside of non-professional teenage Slashdot readers who still think the shitty Perl syntax is 'kewl', who the hell cares about the language anymore?

Perhaps people who want to work for the dozens of Fortune 500 companies who have huge numbers of systems written in Perl. Or perhaps people who want to work for the large number of internet startups that use a lot of Perl code.

But, hey, if neither of those options really appeal to you then feel free to use something else. The fewer people that want to write Perl, the more I get paid for writing it.
