Perl 5 is used everywhere. Even in places where people would like to deny
it's being used, like banks and insurance companies, chemical experimentation
labs and space stations. It's an essential part of the infrastructure.
The only problem with people's perception of Perl, is they associate Perl 6
with Perl 5, and Perl 6 is not used anywhere, (yet...)
