Can you possibly elaborate on what you mean by "the scope of Perl"?

Perl is used extensively in internet programming, scientific programming, commercial software interfaces, and much more. What the future scope of perl is, I don't know. Perl 6 is still under development ( more than 8 years now ) and from what I understand will not be backwards compatible with earlier versions of perl.

If you want to keep up on the state of Perl, I would recommend you read Larry Wall's annual speech called the "State of the Onion".

Regards,

Wanna see something funny.... Larry might be a great programmer but a great website designer hes not:

Larry Wall's Home Page

Jeff, I think most of the links on the page you posted are no longer active, it might be better to use the official perl 6 site:

Perl 6 / Perl 6

I think the SotO talks are linked to from the wiki page, but I'm not sure.
