in reply to The three virtues of Perl are CONFLICTING!

Remember, there are two kinds of people in the world of computer science:

  • pico folk
  • vi folk
Them emacs folk are aliens - don't alert them to this fact. They know too much as it is. They'll claim that Free Source cannot be written without a GNU editor.

But enough about that - as for the original virtues, best to only apply them to Perl. Mixed metaphors can result in laboratory explosions - ever think about applying Hubris to COBOL???

    vi till the day I die... I get it! As soon as you become a transient, higher-order being (via death), you'll use emacs. Excellent. Many folks like me have already caught on to this and are using emacs before they die. :-D
    AgentM Systems nor Nasca Enterprises nor Bone::Easy nor Macperl is responsible for the comments made by AgentM. Remember, you can build any logical system with NOR.

    <sigh> I'm an emacs sort of person myself. I do not, however, claim that open source cannot be written with anything but a GNU editor, however, I find it the best editor for my "style of stuff", whatever that may be. I hope to die and continue to use emacs; I currently use it for all but the tiniest of jobs, for which I use pico -- never vi(m).
      You may want to look at jove for small jobs, it's roughly the size of vi but with the common macros and a minimalist feature-set of emacs. There's also jed and µemacs; the latter does not default to a decent usable set of macros though.
