in thread A proposal: new section on Perl Monks.
The problem with this IMO is the misconception that code expressed in English would be clearer than the same code expressed in Perl. Spoken languages are unsuitable for explaining algorithms in a concise and unambiguous manner. Think about it, if code could be expressed well in English, don't you think somebody would have written a complier to translate (a limited subset of) English to executable code?
Does Lingua::Romana::Perligata ring a bell?
Ok, it's Latin, not English but...
