Use the best tool for the job.

    Use the best tool for the job.

    The job in question is improving some rather public Perl code, not frothing-at-the-mouth language advocacy.

    Update: I do appreciate the sentiment wrt. actual unreasoning-advocacy, though.

      Ah, that's what I get for not reading the entire post. My language-advocacy-alarm went off a bit too soon. I apologize.
