erl has been around since 1987 and became an early darling of web developers. These days, however, you don’t hear much about Perl. Everyone seems to be talking about trendier languages like PHP, Python and Ruby, with Perl left in the back as a neglected, not-so-hip cousin.

I hope that "Perl (is) far from dead".
If the syntax were less strange and irregular, we would not have heard of Ruby or Python and perhaps PHP, well almost.
These things that have been 'fixed' in Perl 6.
