This idea that I have asked to have a Perl Monks section that names code (which clearly I didnít) highlights for me the reductionist mentality that top programmers have. I believe that it was because of this reductionist mentality that it was assumed that this is what I would be asking for. Asking for code to be named is the ultimate in reductionism. Reducing code is clearly what they enjoy and is clearly what they are good at doing. This is why I ask for this proposed section to be considered. Not everybody that could benefit from using Perl in his or her work thinks in this reductionist way. But they do jobs where light-programming tasks could save them a lot of time. Please could the people that run this site think about this point carefully.
