Perl Weekly=20

https://perlweekly.com/

You can read the newsletter on the web, if you prefer.
https://perlweekly.com/archive/544.html



Hi there

We wish all the readers of the newsletter, Merry
Christmas
. I hope and wish you are all enjoying quality time with
your loved ones.

Belated happy birthday to my favourite language, Perl, on
completing 34 years. Mark Gardner used his weekly blogging
schedule to celebrate the occassion in his blog post (
https://phoenixtrap.com/2021/12/21/34-at-34-for-v5-34-modern-perl-features-
for-perls-birthday ).

Do you remember which year you first picked up the Perl
language?

For me, I was introduced to Perl in the year 1998. So
technically, I am 23 Perl years old. How about you? I am wondering if
anyone other than the creator picked the language in the first year that it
existed. If you know their name then please do share it with us. I am sure
there must be a handful of people that I am not aware of.

Talking about birthday celebrations, I would like to wish belated Happy
Birthday to the mother of our chief editor, Gabor Szabo.
As per the record, my birthday was last Monday i.e. 20th
December
. To date, I have never celebrated my birthday, this year
also went without celebration.

I noticed that I am getting close to my 100th edition of
the newsletter. This is my 94th edition. It would be a big
achievement for me, personally, to reach that number. I am looking forward
to the 556th edition of the weekly newsletter as that will
be my 100th edition.

Stay safe and enjoy the holiday break.

Your editor: Mohammad S. Anwar.

Hi there


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


We wish all the readers of the newsletter, Merry Christmas<=
/strong>. I hope and wish you are all enjoying quality time with your loved=
ones.

Belated happy birthday to my favourite language, Perlng>, on completing 34 years. Mark Gardner used his weekly =
blogging schedule to celebrate the occassion in his nixtrap.com/2021/12/21/34-at-34-for-v5-34-modern-perl-features-for-perls-bi=
rthday">blog post
.


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


Do you remember which year you first picked up the Perlrong> language?


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


For me, I was introduced to Perl in the year 1998.=
So technically, I am 23 Perl years old. How about you? I am wondering if a=
nyone other than the creator picked the language in the first year that it =
existed. If you know their name then please do share it with us. I am sure =
there must be a handful of people that I am not aware of.


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


Talking about birthday celebrations, I would like to wish belated H=
appy Birthday to the mother of our chief editor, Gabor Szabog>. As per the record, my birthday was last Monday i.e. 20th Decemb=
er
. To date, I have never celebrated my birthday, this year also w=
ent without celebration.


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


I noticed that I am getting close to my 100th editionng> of the newsletter. This is my 94th edition. It would b=
e a big achievement for me, personally, to reach that number. I am looking =
forward to the 556th edition of the weekly newsletter as t=
hat will be my 100th edition.


=20=20=20=20=20=20=20=20


Stay safe and enjoy the holiday break.
