Dossier #2: Perl Poetry

Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language) is a programming language created by Larry Wall, which has its own poetry tradition.  In this issue of the Virtual Poetry Project, we showcase several poems written and/or inspired in/by Perl language, by Larry Wall, Sharon Hopkins Rauenzahn, Eric Andreychek and Graham Harwood.  Thanks to all the authors that kindly contributed the texts, and  agreed to be included in this journal.
