Submission + - Perl Survey (

thefotios writes: "The Perl Survey is attempting to take a snapshot of the Perl world as it currently stands. Whether you're a web developer, sysadmin, or using Perl for scientific research or finance or just tracking your DVD collection, we'd love to hear about it.

We're trying to answer questions like:

        * Where do Perl programmers come from?
        * What sort of fields do they work in?
        * What languages — computer and spoken — do Perl programmers use?
        * How many use Perl as their primary language?
        * What proportion of Perl users participate in the Perl community through mailing lists, user groups, and conferences?

It only takes about 5 minutes to complete.

The survey will be open until September 30th, 2007. After that, we'll be
reporting on the results and making the data freely available."
