in reply to (OT) perl cmp c

I have never seen C being described as "looking nice" before, however, having been programming in C a lot longer than I've programmed in Perl (13 yrs v 4 yrs) I can see advantages in both.

C is good if you have a lot of data to be moved around (eg graphics) and your need the speed of a compiled language. Perl is good for extracting/analysing information in text files or for quick programming jobs where running time isn't critical.

It really is a matter of choosing the right tool for the job (IMHO).
