As one person said on this link: 
you-think/ :

      "Don’t believe the hype, Perl is alive and kicking."

I've even heard that somone still uses C despite it's not 70's anymore ;-)

Me myself is still using Perl almost dayly this again and I'm very productive 
when I'm using Perl as the P in LAMP. When I was active in the Subversion 
project, I used a lot of Perl for dokument conversation and automating stuff 
for making the Windows Installer. Perl is still a wonderful language IMO and I 
believe that will deliver many wonderful programs and solutions in many years 
to come :-)
