Re: I think Perl ruined me as a programmer
in thread I think Perl ruined me as a programmer
C64 V2 Basic, then Turbo BASIC/Pascal, and finally Perl.
That's almost exactly my learning path as well. Was there something in particular about C64 BASIC that prepped our minds for Perl?
And yes, I also feel ruined by this wonderful language. I love getting an opportunity to hack together a perl script, large or small, to solve a problem. I loathe being forced to code in a more restrictive language, where "Hello World" is more than one line of code...
