Perl on Stackoverflow #biology #perl

Funny how many of the bad questions about Perl on Stackoverflow are related to handling files coming from microbiology.

I guess being an introductory language in bioinformatics is one of the remaining strongholds for Perl. Except for BioPython and, maybe, BioRuby.

Wouldn't it be fun if BioHaskell took off? I don't feel like learning Python, or Ruby.
