Perl is easy to start using. But sometimes, being easy can get you into trouble. The many ways to program in Perl mean that code can often be cryptic, obscure, or muddled. Being able to resurrect the rotten legacy program that just landed on your desk is an increasingly necessary skill. So is being able to upgrade and maintain the program you wrote a year ago when you were less experienced (or less sober) than now.
