in reply to Modern Perl and the Future of Perl

Several hours ago, you seemed to be so assertive that there is no maintainability issue with perl code. Now out of nowhere, you suddenly posted this, which is defensive and even some sort of nervous.

This very post itself has said it all, and more powerful than any opposition: there is something wrong with perl code's maintainability.

I knew that you won't admit in public, but take a moment before you go sleep tonight, and think about what I have just said.

    I know posting is fun, and accusing people of hypocrisy and backtracking and doubletalk is a gas, gas, gas, but would it bother you too much to read what I wrote, then read the linked posts, then think about what they said, and only then post?

    It's not about maintainability. It's about simplicity, elegance, abstraction, and good solutions to common problems.

      Well don't be defensive and take my constructive comments. Like other posts in this threads have said, your initial post is quite incoherent.

        Oh great. Now Cop is using sock-puppets. Talk about partying like it's 1999.

[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
[Discipulus]: italian doc says to modify somehow the initial SVG before using it with D3.js
[Discipulus]: LanX the fact is that my js ability is even poorer than my Perl one..
[LanX]: oh its negative? ;P
[Discipulus]: my warmest comprehension karlgoethebier ;=(
