Who Uses Perl
There's a great myth out there that no one uses Perl. This is because Perl tends to be a great stealth tool, being used in organisations where it's needed with or without official approval. The truth is that there are a lot of companies where Perl is used starting from small tasks to mission critical applications. People in Perl Training Australia have put together a nice explanation with the title Why Perl? They also include a list of Australian comapanies using Perl.
As a partial response to the "Perl obscurity problem", we've composed the following list of
