Perl is not dead. There is enough space for multiple languages to exist. Loot at http://search.cpan.org/recent to judge the number of modules created/updated every day. Certainly not all of them are written by old programmers.
Look at other projects like catalyst framework, webmin, bricolage, movabletype blog, mojolicious, foswiki,webgui cms etc., to see how alive it is.
Above all our KG's favourite search engine duckduckgo is also running on perl. I think another search engine blekko is also using perl.
Hopefully perl6 will come soon to set at rest all the doubts.
