Perl ABC Information

Perl Philosophy

Some of you may hear the Perl hating somewhere, and you may search for the reason. I want to solve the misunderstanding about Perl. I created content that lets you learn about Perl's philosophy.

Nowadays, there are widely used dynamic programming languages such as Python, PHP, Ruby in addition to Perl. Feel free to compare them to Perl from a fair point of view, what you can actually do easily, what is easy for beginners to use.

Perl ABC Translation

A translation of the Perl ABC into another language. This site is originally Japanese. I started to translate this site into English at 2021-11. I plan that the not very good descriptions and examples by the automatic translation will be gradually fixed until 2023-01.
