Perl is 9th on TIOBE Index

My beloved Perl is 9th on the TIOBE Programming Community Index. I know the index's idea is flawed by design but it is always fun to know where we stand :) The most interesting thing is the "D 2.0 language" comeback but hey on CPAN we have no Inline::D? Any volunteers?

I used to search with "perl some other keywords" ... I'll switch to "perl programming some other keywords" :)

TOIBE is completely useless. Tim Bunce has a good writeup on this - http://blog.timbunce.org/2008/04/12/tiobe-or-not-tiobe-lies-damned-lies-and-statistics/

Yeah I know. It was already included in my blog post under 'flawed by design' :)
