how do i describe a perl user? - PERL Beginners

just wondering what a user of Perl may be called? "Perler"?? Theres got to be some fancy name for it. Perl is not just another programming language.. I reckon its much more like a religion with attitude.. :) Cheers, SanoBabu...

    Where there is 'JAPH' but that tends to have another meaning as well....

    Considering readability is often a goal in Perl, why not call them "a
    user of Perl"... or if you are into the whole brevity thing, a "Perl
    Programmer".

    Well thats what http://www.google.com/search?q=define%3A%20guru says..
    i say to be a guru someone has to be nutcrack... :) It takes a lot of
    patience, hardship to be one.. lets say like Randal, Larry or Tom who
    help peps with that same answer over n over again..
    I read somewhere Perl monks are like maniacs or something.. :) but in
    a good way.. All Perl hacker are maniacs i guess with coffeine
    ejecting out of their nerves..
    As i say this i am still learning Perl and intend to be like them one
    day...(lets see when that day is now [ nodding to myself ] )

    I've never heard of "Perler" (or seen you say it), and it sounds weird
    to my ears.

    "Perl newbie"
    "Perl user"
    "Perl hacker"

    That would cover most of the spectrum. Unless you're on P5P or P6-*,
    in which case you are a:

    "perl hacker"

    Note lowercase p. :)
