in reply to Teach him a lesson with facts

Why nobody came out write up three pieces of code, one in Perl, one on c, one in Java and show him how wrong he is? Why?

Because:

  • You don't feed the trolls.
  • Small benchmarks are pointless, unless you have to deal with a specific micro-optimisation (which is rare).
  • You don't feed the trolls.
  • Raw speed is not the only way you judge the utility of a language. The vast majority of the time it's not that important. Issues of maintainability, development speed, reliability, robustness, etc. are usually more important.
  • You don't feed the trolls :-)

(Personally, I disagree with your other comment on an individual monk - but PM is certainly not the place to raise these issues.)


People - please remember the first, third and fifth point above (and note how well points two and four were addressed :-)

    A troll is a troll, just becasue you think he is a troll.

    Call him troll 1000000000000000000000 times does not make your arguement more powerful.

    I am not surprised to see more people here are on the side you stand, as this is a Perl site. However man power does not prove you are right. 1 person say 1 = 1, and another 100000000000000 persons say 1 <> 2. So what?

    use logic, don't use strong wording, ;-) My advice is free.
      1 person say 1 = 1, and another 100000000000000 persons say 1 <> 2. So what?

      I guess all of them are right, since 1=1 and 1<>2 are both true. Or was it a trick question?
