in reply to Re^7: Perl is dying (better sorting than the ST)
in thread Perl is dying

I admit I never thought about the former. I did think of the latter, and itís consistent with one of the weaknesses I see in the Perl community (namely the tendency to pick clever and shorter-looking solutions), which is why I will now often point out this approach when people talk about the ST.

Hmm. Interesting thought. It wonít stop me from advocating this approach, but itís a much more complete explanation of the STís prevalence than I had before.
