Perl is pretty useful for code generation and/or parsing, e.g. in order to
find mistakes you did or to build the thing you've created. It can also be
used to convert code. Thus I wouldn't say it's useless in an
multiple-platform multi-year environment.

debuggers to get beyond where code does what wrong.

!assert(typeof((fool)->next) == typeof(fool));
