in reply to Comparison between Perl and Ksh

Does your manager know that the rest of us have electric lights and horseless carriages now? Maybe this article about Perl versus Tcl is relevant. It talks about Tcl as having typical drawbacks of shell languages. (Note that Tcl has actually improved dramatically since then, but Ksh probably has not.)

UPDATE: This is another article, with more direct discussion of korn shell.

[Corion]: Hmm. I think overnight I decided on simplifying some code. I have plugin classes that do data import (.csv, .yml, .json) and for that create objects on which then ->load() is called. But YAML::XS doesn't have an object, so I wrote my own wrapper.
[Corion]: This evening, I'll kill that wrapper again, and just call LoadFile() in the plugin class directly instead of creating a go-between object for no real gain.
[Corion]: Writing these import plugins was really nice though - in about 2 hours, I had imports for CSV, YAML and JSON, and adding XLS(X), SQLite (or DBI) data sources is also trivial. I'm idly wondering about separating the plugin into transport+parser, so ...
[Corion]: ... http:// URLs could be retrieved and then parsed, but I think that that would be overkill for a toy static site generator ;)
