I wouldn't use the word 'most', but here in Southeast Asia it's a real
challenge to find a Perl developer with significant experience in Perl/
modperl. Those who do use it as a minor scripting tool in their unix
administration.

There are still jobs requiring Perl of course, but it's usually in the
context of having Perl as a secondary proficiency, with Java/ .NET as
the primary. We have a real problem getting the average freshie to
appreciate the beauty of dynamic languages.

Sorry guys.
