"One of the things you might not realize when you're
thinking about Perl and hearing about Perl is that there is an
awful lot of disinformation out there, and it's really hard
for someone who's not very familiar with Perl to separate the wheat
from the chaff, and it's very easy to accept some of these things
as gospel truth - sometimes without even realising it.
"What I'm going to do, then, is to pick out the top ten myths
that you'll hear bandied around, and give a response to them. I'm
not going to try to persuade you to use Perl - the only way for you
to know if it's for you is to get on and try it - but hopefully I
can let you see that not all of what you hear is true."
