Arc vs Perl: What are the differences?
Developers describe Arc as "A dialect of the Lisp programming language developed by Paul Graham and Robert Morris". Arc is designed for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software. On the other hand, Perl is detailed as "Highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 26 years of development". Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed for text manipulation and now used for a wide range of tasks including system administration, web development, network programming, GUI development, and more.
Arc and Perl can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
Perl is an open source tool with 435 GitHub stars and 152 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Perl's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Perl has a broader approval, being mentioned in 133 company stacks & 64 developers stacks; compared to Arc, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

In addition to our fancy Docker setup, we have captured and sanitized production logs for the behavior of our legacy Perl MTA, and we can test that the log output from the new Go version behaves the same way as the old version. These tests are set up to allow us to switch between the legacy and new version of the MTA and ensure that both systems behave in a legacy-compatible way. Not only can we ensure that we operate against a variety of issues we've seen over time from inboxes, but we know that the newest version of our MTA continues to cover all the same expected behaviors of the legacy version. #CodeCollaborationVersionControl #ContinuousIntegration
The whole backend part (deployment and other scripts, business logic, web interface) is written in Perl.
Весь бэкенд (скрипты деплоя и прочие, бизнес-логика, веб-интерфейс) написан на Perl.
I use Perl to rip through log files and compare them to some signature files I have created. When I get a match, it adds the bad guy to the list of shame in MySQL.
A very expressive language, lets you say the same thing in many different ways
