For those looking to hire a Perl programmer, two suggestions:

1. Don't put it in all caps:

2. Make sure you post on the Perl jobs board:

ps. I have no idea how the Java folks like their language
    capitalized, but I suspect it's similar.

pps. On the plus side, it makes it really easy to weed out
     resumes of who's only dabbling and not active in the
     community.
