Nobody thunk it, nobody knew...is Perl really Perl without dynamic types.

Well according to the Perl .Net documentation it is:

Now standard with the Perl Dev kit and every installation from ActiveState:

Parrot looks like the more approriate technology for Perl:

The reason is always the same:

Of course, they didn't put checked exceptions in .Net (or anything else) which some people think was a mistake in Java. I think it's one of the best ways to catch some of the most obvious mistakes in programming. But some people disagree.

MS says roughly the same thing:
