"Your Unix Is Leaking Perl"

That has to be one of the weirdest statements I've read in, oh, at least fifteen minutes.[1]

(The image is a link to the original strip; if you've got javascript enabled, you can see this bonus strip by hovering over the burgundy red button below to the left.)

A huge thanks to Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal for this piece of wisdom, but I'm afraid that Zach Weiner got it backwards when he thought that would be expensive.

May I suggest that when a computer "leaks Perl", it does so because the (hopefully brilliant) Perl programmer is contributing a lot to CPAN?


Yes, I've been communicating with customers lately, how did you guess?
