in reply to The Perl Crackpot Index

I believe there is also a Damian paradox: Class::Contract vs. SelfGOL.

Can I still get the points for the templating and MVC systems if I never released them on CPAN?

Also, I suggest:

  • Low points for constantly dissing Java.
  • Medium points for writing your own inheritance system (see "Ingy paradox").
  • High points for trying to parse Perl code (see "source filters").

    Things you do in private and never tell anyone about can't count. It shows that you have the social discretion to realize what you've done is wrong. :)

    you can still get the points if you make everyone at work use your new system, and indocrinate all the interns into your "correct" way of using Perl. If you are just going through a Perl rite of passage or trying out a new idea, then no points for you.

    I hope people don't see this as a competition. :)

      Oh, I definitely made people at work use it! Thankfully it didn't last that long because Template Toolkit became fast enough.
