1987 - Larry Wall falls asleep and hits Larry Wall's forehead on the keyboard. Upon waking Larry Wall decides that the string of characters on Larry Wall's monitor isn't random but an example program in a programming language that God wants His prophet, Larry Wall, to design. Perl is born.

Zomaar 1 random 'fact' uit A Brief, Incomplete, and Mostly Wrong History of Programming Languages. Erg grappig :-D En nog behoorlijk actueel ook want het loopt helemaal door naar Scala uit 2003.
