in reply to Re^3: Perl is dying
in thread Perl is dying
I've never seen anyone go apoplectic over "PERL". This is apoplectic:
New here, eh?
GOOD FRELLING GRIEF, WHAT KIND OF FRAKING MORON ARE YOU! EVERYONE AND THEIR SISTER'S DOG KNOWS THAT "PERL" IS NOT AN ACRONYM YOU VACUOUS, TOFFEE-NOSED, MALODOROUS PERVERT! IT'S "perl" OR "Perl" YOU SECOND HAND ELECTRIC DONKEY BOTTOM BITER!
This is what usually happens:
"Perl" is the language, "perl" is the implementation; "PERL" is just wrong.
See the difference?
People who write perl, Perl and PERL
PERL as shibboleth and the Perl community
Capitalizing acronyms (Re: Is PERL case sensitive?)
I suppose some of that isn't so bad, but it looks awfully stupid. I'd dig up other examples, but it's extremely hard to search for different capitalizations.
